Product Reports

Measuring performance. One product at a time.

The way our products are manufactured, used and recycled represents the largest percentage of our total greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why we design products with better environmental performance in mind. We report that performance in comprehensive Product Environmental Reports.

Every Apple product is rated in four categories:

Climate Change

How each phase of the product’s life cycle contributes to its total carbon footprint.

Restricted Substances

Which toxic substances are not used in or when making the product.

Energy Efficiency

How efficient the product is while on, off and in sleep mode.

Material Efficiency

A proportional breakdown of what materials are used in the product.
