Apple today announced a series of measures to promote its use of renewable energy and environmental protection initiatives in China.
The company has announced a new multi-year partnership with the World Wildlife Fund to protect as much as 1 million acres of forest land.
Further, the company said it wants to significantly reduce carbon emissions from its manufacturing facilities in China, and will turn to renewable sources as it has for stores, etc.
“We’ve set an example by greening our data centers, retail stores and corporate offices, and we’re ready to start leading the way toward reducing carbon emissions from manufacturing,” said Tim Cook, CEO, Apple.
The announcement comes three weeks after Apple launched its first major solar energy project in China and is in line with the company’s goal to achieve net-zero impact for energy.
