Our sustainability statement:
Science drives our environmental strategy. Our ambitions—including our commitment to carbon neutrality by 2030—are defined by data. And so are the three pillars of our strategy: climate change, resources, and smarter chemistry


We will get there by reducing our emissions by 75 percent compared to 2015, and then investing in carbon removal solutions for the remaining emissions. We want to create products with net zero carbon impact by 2030.

We aim to make products and packaging using only recycled or renewable materials. At the same time, we’re committed to stewarding water resources and sending zero waste to landfill. We reduced our energy use by 13.9 million kilowatt-hours through efficiency efforts implemented in fiscal year 2020. Our Prineville data center is the first Apple facility to receive TRUE certification—meaning more than 90 % of its waste is sent to recycling or composting.
