Apple Joins RE100 Renewable Energy Initiative

Apple Joins RE100 Renewable Energy Initiative


If there is one thing that Apple loves to boast, it is that their products are green. Not the color green, but green as in good for the environment because Apple chooses to use renewable energy, as well as choosing materials that won’t have a negative impact on the environment. However going green is more than just about their products.

It also involves Apple’s operations, and recently Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson has announced that the company will be joining the RE100 renewable energy initiative. In case you’re unfamiliar, the goal of the initiative is to get big companies to pledge that they will work towards using 100% renewable energy for their operations.

According to Jackson, “Apple is committed to running on 100 percent renewable energy, and we’re happy to stand beside other companies that are working toward the same effort. We’re excited to share the industry-leading work we’ve been doing to drive renewable energy into the manufacturing supply chain, and look forward to partnering with RE100 to advocate for clean-energy policies around the world.”

As it stands, Apple’s data centers already run on 100% renewable energy, and their operations in the US, China, and 21 other countries are also 100% renewable. In 2015, Apple’s other operations around the world were at 93% renewable energy, so it looks like Apple is close to hitting that 100% mark.
