Apple, a technology giant and a company that for years has been considered one of the bravest in a rather specific market, has just announced that it intends to achieve climate neutrality by 2030.
The map for achieving climate neutrality is part of the annual report that Apple published yesterday. The technology giant assumes that by 2030 it will be able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated in Apple’s factories by 75%.
The company is already creating more and more of its products from recycled materials. For this purpose, there are two robots, Dave and Daisy, which help the company recover some materials, such as magnets or tungsten contained in devices intended for scrap. In Austin, Texas, Tim Cook’s company also runs a dedicated laboratory specializing in developing techniques for recovering recycled materials.
Energy from renewable sources
The second main factor that the company focused on is energy acquisition. The presented document states that Apple is in talks with 70 companies that supply electricity to the company’s buildings and factories. Expects suppliers to be able to ensure that 100 percent the supplied electricity will be produced from renewable energy sources. According to the company’s analysts, in this way it will be possible to reduce CO2 emissions by as much as three million cars produce each year.
Apple is currently creating the world’s largest solar panel farm. The company’s new policy also includes initiatives to help reforest the territories of Africa and South America.
