With its "Clean Energy Program", Apple wants to make its value-added chain greener. The company says it has doubled the use of renewables in its supply chain in the last year. This equates to 10 gigawatts of green energy at the moment, and the target to be achieved in the coming years is 16 gigawatts. The company, whose headquarters are in Cupertino in California, plans for its supply chain to be carbon neutral by 2030.
Plansee was named after Lake Plansee, from which the company has been drawing hydroelectric power since its foundation over a hundred years ago: A clear demonstration that the use of renewable energy is firmly rooted in the philosophy of this high-tech business.
What's more, Plansee works hard to ensure its production activities are sustainable, for example, through the increasing use of recycled raw materials and the rising use of renewable energy for the manufacture of components for Apple devices.
"We are delighted to be joining Apple's Supplier Clean Energy Program and to work with them on new ideas for conserving resources, the circular economy, and reducing our carbon footprint," explains Plansee Group Executive Board member Wolfgang Köck.
