Apple's Environmental Innovations in 2024


In 2024, Apple has made significant strides in reducing its environmental impact and promoting sustainability through several key initiatives, reflecting its commitment to environmental protection and combating climate change 😊.



Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction

Apple has successfully reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by over 55% since 2015. This progress marks a significant step towards Apple's 2030 goal of achieving carbon neutrality across its entire value chain by the end of the decade.


Investments in Clean Energy and Water

Apple has increased its investments in clean energy and sustainable water management globally, aiming to positively influence its operations and those of its suppliers.


Restore Fund and Cooperation

Apple has expanded its Restore Fund, with the participation of TSMC and Murata, to support new carbon removal projects through natural solutions. These investments are directed towards creating sustainably managed forests in South America and aim to remove one million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2025.


Material Innovations

Apple has ramped up its efforts to use recycled materials in its products. For instance, the MacBook Air with M3 chip is manufactured using 50% recycled materials, including a significant percentage of cobalt and lithium sourced from recycled batteries.


Partnerships and Environmental Education

Apple partners with local and global actors to foster sustainability. This includes educational programmes and grants to organisations that protect the health and well-being of populations affected by climate change.


Recycling and Waste Management

The company continues to push innovations in recycling, with projects like the Daisy disassembly robot, which can process 29 iPhone models into 15 distinct components, thus enhancing the efficient recycling of electronic waste.


Sustainable Construction

Over 100 Apple facilities, including Apple Stores and data centres, now meet the criteria for LEED and BREEAM certifications, reflecting the company's commitment to building a greener future 🌍.


These initiatives demonstrate Apple's ongoing commitment not only to reducing its own environmental impact but also to encouraging a broader movement towards sustainability and environmental responsibility worldwide.
