Apple Gets Greener, Announces 100% Clean Energy Now Used at all Data Centers

graph_worldwideFor a tech company of Apple’s size, making a serious commitment to reducing the environmental impact of their processes might actually make a real difference in the bigger picture, so it’s cool to hear them talk about the progress they’re making toward that end. In a statement just released on the “Apple and the Environment” page of their website, we just learned that all of Apple’s data centers are now running off 100% renewable energy.

Beyond clean energy at all data centers, it appears Apple really is making strides toward reducing the carbon footprint that results from making millions of iPods, iPhones, iPads, and Macs. You can imagine the challenge this poses when, as noted on the press release, they’re trying to reduce energy needs even as their employee base inevitably grows… Even so, it’s apparently working:

“Our investments are paying off. We’ve already achieved 100 percent renewable energy at all of our data centers, at our facilities in Austin, Elk Grove, Cork, and Munich, and at our Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino, we’re at 75 percent, and we expect that number to grow as the amount of renewable energy available to us increases. We won’t stop working until we achieve 100 percent throughout Apple.


So, universe, ball is in your court—make more renewable energy available to Apple (or however that works…). Also noted in the press release is the incredibly energy efficiency afforded by Apple’s wealth of digital downloads available to the public, as well as the factors that allow them to “achieve net zero”—energy efficiency, energy generation, and purchasing renewable energy.


So if you’ve ever wondered about Apple and the environment, spend some time on the page. It’s pretty convincing, and definitely makes you believe Apple isn’t just putting in all this effort for appearances.
