Apple’s operations are now using 100% renewable energy sources. The company announced Monday that its global facilities are now 100-percent run by renewable energy.
Two years ago, it was 93 percent but now Apple’s operations are now using 100% renewable energy from Apple Park to its data centers to worldwide fleet of Apple retail stores.
It’s a huge success for the company as the iPhone maker has been working toward for years with the purchase of green energy bonds and other renewable sources.
The victory is in line with the company’s 2015 plan to achieve 100-percent renewable energy project and now it adds retail stores, offices and co-located facilities to that list, and covered 43 countries, including the US, China, UK, and India.
Apple has been working for years in its supply chain and physical infrastructure and purchases Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, which promises the cleanliness of an energy source. The company also invests in solar, wind, and other renewable energy resources worldwide.
The move includes some innovative facilities such as 300 solar rooftops in Japan and 800 in Singapore as well as Apple says it has currently 25 renewable energy globally running projects with 15 more are under development.
“We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement.
