Apple today unveiled its plan to become carbon neutral across its entire business, manufacturing supply chain, and product life cycle by 2030. The company is already carbon neutral today for its global corporate operations, and this new commitment means that by 2030, every Apple device sold will have net zero climate impact.
We have a bold commitment to reducing our own energy consumption and increasing our renewable energy purchases through to our operations. We work with our suppliers to improve their efficiency, and we also minimize the energy intensity across our product portfolio.
We’ve achieved zero deforestation associated with HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging. We intend to become the worlds most sustainable and just technology company by 2030.
By 2030, we will be carbon negative, and by 2050, we will remove our historical emissions since we were founded in 1975. By 2030, we will replenish more water than we use. We will reduce the water intensity of our direct operations and replenish in water-stressed regions where we work.
We strive to do things differently so that we can consistently become better—for our customers, our employees, the communities where we do business, and the environment. With an unwavering commitment to a healthier planet, we are continually striving to lessen our impact and lower our carbon footprint.
We evaluate potential environmental impacts at every stage of product development—from material and design choices, to manufacturing, to customer satisfaction and end-of-life recycling. As our product portfolio grows, we identify drivers of environmental impact and interactions, and identify consumer behaviors.
