For many years, Apple has been leading the way as a champion of the environment and has made huge strides in manufacturing and operations practices that benefit the wellness of the Earth. On HBO’s VICE News Tonight, Apple Vice President of Environmental, Policy and Social Initiatives, Lisa Jackson, talks about a new goal that Apple has for protecting the environment — Apple wants to make all of its products from recycled or renewable resources, eliminating the need to mine the Earth for rare minerals and metals.
Apple has really moved the needle on using renewable energy at its facilities according to the Environmental Responsibility Report, 2017 Progress Report:
In 2016, 96 percent of the electricity used at our global facilities came from renewable energy, reducing our carbon emissions by nearly 585,000 metric tons. We’re 100 percent renewable in 24 countries—and all of Apple’s data centers.
