Apple has announced that its suppliers have increased their use of clean power by more than double over the last year, with over 10 gigawatts operational today out of nearly 16 gigawatts in total commitments in the coming years.

Apple is continuously working towards its transition to clean energy. 213 of the company’s major manufacturing partners have committed renewable electricity to power all Apple production, across 25 countries.

“We are proud that so many of our manufacturing partners have joined our urgent work to address the climate crisis by generating more renewable energy around the world,” said Lisa Jackson, Vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives, Apple. “Clean energy is good for business and good for the planet. By sharing what we learned in our own transition to renewables, we are helping point the way to a greener future.”

In addition to clean energy commitments made by 213 manufacturing partners, Apple is directly investing in renewable projects globally, including nearly 500 megawatts of solar and other renewable projects in China and Japan to cover a portion of upstream emissions. To support businesses in their transition to clean power, Apple shares data and offers training materials with market-specific information. These resources have helped spur new clean energy solutions across the globe.

Through innovation and policy engagement, Apple has worked with partners to help suppliers in markets where there is a lack of access to cost-effective clean energy.

With continued efforts toward its carbon-neutral goals, the company has also focused on supporting the communities most impacted by climate change.

Currently, solar projects in Colombia, the Philippines, and South Africa are providing affordable and reliable electricity to communities facing significant energy challenges. Apple continues to expand the program to other parts of the world, including Israel, Nigeria, Thailand, and Vietnam. These projects bring jobs and lead to energy savings that can be reinvested into local communities.
