Ioshackz.com Apple Will Invest In The Construction Of World’s Largest Onshore Wind Turbines Apple announced today that it will invest in the construction of two of the world’s largest onshore wind turbines, a source of clean, renewable energy that will bring its supply chain and products one step closer to carbon neutrality.
“Combatting climate change demands urgent action and global partnership — and the Viborg data center is powerful proof that we can rise to this generational challenge,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives. “Investments in clean energy deliver breakthrough innovations that bring clean energy and good jobs to businesses and local communities. This is an area where we have to lead — for the sake of our planet and future generations.”
In October of 2015, Apple unveiled a program to help suppliers minimize their energy use and move to 100 % renewable electricity. Since its launch, 72 manufacturing partners in 17 different countries have dedicated 100% of renewable energy to Apple production. If all of Apple’s supplier projects have been completed, these investments will eliminate more than 14.3 million metric tons of CO2 each year — the equivalent of taking more than 3 million cars off the road per year.
