A more complex carbon footprint requires more inventive solutions.
When we measure our carbon footprint, we include hundreds of suppliers, millions of customers, and hundreds of millions of devices. And we’re always looking for ways to make the biggest difference in five major areas: manufacturing, product use, facilities, transportation, and recycling.
We design each generation of our products to be as energy efficient as possible. We’re sourcing lower-carbon materials to make our devices, and we’re partnering with suppliers to add clean energy to their facilities. We produce and procure clean, renewable energy to power 93 percent of our offices, retail stores, and data centers around the world, which has lowered emissions from our facilities to 1 percent of our comprehensive carbon footprint. We’re also adjusting our recycling practices and rethinking our shipping strategies.
