Apple to track suppliers’ emissions, decarbonize by 2030


In a press release this week, Apple said it is urging its suppliers to take action now towards the company’s 2030 supply chain decarbonization goal by addressing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. At the same time, Apple announced that it has made several investments in clean energy technologies and projects around the world.


Apple will require that its suppliers report on their progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and will audit these reductions each year. Specifically looking at Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions related to Apple production.


Apple will partner with, and prioritize suppliers that are taking concrete steps and measurable strides toward reducing their carbon emissions.


“Fighting climate change remains one of Apple’s most urgent priorities, and moments like this put action to those words,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re looking forward to continued partnership with our suppliers to make Apple’s supply chain carbon neutral by 2030. Climate action at Apple doesn’t stop at our doors, and in this work, we’re determined to be a ripple in the pond that creates a bigger change.”
