Apple is investing in two of the world’s largest onshore wind turbines to boost its efforts to achieve 100% carbon neutrality by 2030.
Apple said in a blog post today that electricity generated by turbines in Denmark will support Apple’s data center in Viborg. The center supports Apple’s key products, including app store, apple music, IMessage and Siri.
Apple announced a new plan in July to be “carbon neutral” throughout its business, manufacturing supply chain and product life cycle by 2030.
“Carbon neutralization” refers to the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions directly or indirectly generated by enterprises, groups or individuals in a certain period of time, in order to offset their own carbon dioxide emissions through afforestation, energy conservation and emission reduction, so as to achieve “zero emission” of carbon dioxide.
German supplier varta has promised to operate its apple production with 100% renewable electricity, apple said. Apple also revealed that so far, 72 manufacturing partners have pledged to use renewable energy to produce for apple.
Analysts say it is also in Apple’s best interest to help combat climate change.
Apple said in a document last year that bad weather caused by global warming could temporarily interrupt the supply of parts or finished products, data center supply or labor supply. The delay in parts means that Apple may not be able to deliver on time, affecting sales.
“It’s something we have to lead for our planet and for future generations,” Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president for environment, policy and social initiatives, said in a statement
Currently, Apple’s global corporate operations have been carbon neutral. To achieve 100% carbon neutrality means that by 2030, every apple device sold on the market will have a “net zero” impact on climate, 20 years ahead of the “carbon neutral” target set by the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change (IPCC).
