Following Google’s lead, Apple has announced that Apple is now globally powered by 100 percent renewable energy.

As part of its commitment to combat climate change and create a healthier environment, Apple today announced its global facilities are powered with 100 percent clean energy. This achievement includes retail stores, offices, data centers and co-located facilities in 43 countries — including the United States, the United Kingdom, China and India. The company also announced nine additional manufacturing partners have committed to power all of their Apple production with 100 percent clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

“We’re committed to leaving the world better than we found it. After years of hard work we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it.”*

Will more technological companies follow their example? Kudos to two industry giants for taking the lead!

I especially liked the sensitive approach to generating renewable electricity in interesting locations, like elevating solar panels to allow grass to grow, and yaks to graze beneath in China.

The lat bit of good news is that it’s Friday! Enjoy the weekend!
