Apple, Inc. has set an ambitious carbon-neutrality goal, which it hopes to achieve by 2030. Key to achieving this goal is an ambitious recycling plan. Apple has already slashed the Company’s aluminum related carbon emissions by 68% since 2015 by utilizing more recycled aluminum, which drastically reduces carbon emissions associated with mineral extraction. In addition, Apple reached 100% renewable energy in 2018, and is urging companies throughout its supply chain to do the same. The Company has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, eliminate plastic packaging by 2025, reduce water impacts in manufacturing, and increase energy efficiency in Apple stores, data centers, offices, and factories.
