With the looming climate crisis, several tech companies have been urged to use renewable energies to uphold eco-friendly measures.

As one of the most popular tech firms in the world, Apple is planning to use renewable energy for its iPhones, Macs, and iPads by 2030.

Huge Green Energy Statement

As reported first by 9News, Apple’s Vice President of the environment Lisa Jackson, celebrated the company’s 40th anniversary in Sydney, Australia on Thursday, Aug. 11, by making a huge green energy statement.

The tech giant has committed to acquiring renewable energy from a brand-new Australian wind farm in Queensland, which could supply 80,000 homes with electricity.

All of this is in line with Apple’s effort to meet its renewable energy goals. The company expects to meet its 2030 climate objective of becoming carbon neutral across the whole business, including supply chain and customer products.

9News noted that Apple has already achieved carbon neutrality for their corporate activities, specifically for Retail Stores, Offices, and Travel back in April of 2020.

This means that your iPad, Mac, and iPhone will run entirely on renewable energy by 2030!

But what if you still want to plug your Apple devices using the current energy? Well, the company will make sure to cover your real usage without relying on a not-so “clean energy.”

It is worth noting, though, that Apple will not be tracking your usage since it has examined usage patterns across its 1.8 billion devices and might propose more concrete measures in the future, according to 9News.

9News further reported that user accounts for 22% of the company’s overall carbon footprint.

Addressing The Climate Crisis

Apple’s Executive Chief Tim Cook said that Apple is “proud” to celebrate its long history in Australia and to expand its shared commitment to safeguarding the planet and providing opportunities to “people’s lives.”

“At Apple, we recognise the urgent need to address the climate crisis, and we’re accelerating our global work to ensure our products have a net-zero climate footprint across their entire lifecycle,” Jackson said during the celebration.

In addition, Apple unveiled a program that will assist university students at RMIT in Melbourne and UTS in Sydney in finishing a four-week Swift Coding course as part of their studies, regardless of what they are normally studying.

At the same time, Apple has announced that it sponsors programs for Indigenous peoples in Australia as part of its Racial Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI), which has now been expanded into the country.
