Apple invests in solar energy

Apple has announced two new programs aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of its manufacturing partners in China. According to the tech giant, the projects will remove over 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gasses from the manufacturing cycle between now and 2020.

Apple also announced that construction on 40 megawatts of solar projects in the Sichuan Province is now complete. These solar installations produce more than the total amount of electricity used by Apple’s offices and retail stores in China, making Apple's operations carbon neutral in China, said the company.

“Climate change is one of the great challenges of our time, and the time for action is now,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The transition to a new green economy requires innovation, ambition and purpose. We believe passionately in leaving the world better than we found it and hope that many other suppliers, partners and other companies join us in this important effort.”

Apple is taking a similar route to Google, which combines buying solar energy with stakes in solar projects in the US and abroad. Other tech companies, like Microsoft and Facebook, have stuck with buying renewable energy.

Wrappers seeks to minimise its carbon footprint in several ways. Our materials are chosen as eco-friendly, either by their manufacturer being carbon neutral, as with Alcantara, or being biodegradable, as with wool felt, or manufactured from plant material, as with linen. Designs use minimal materials and we control our packing and postage which means we avoid the excess packaging associated with online purchases.
