New Apple Data Centers Hope To Shrink Carbon Footprint

It seems that Apple has edged a whole lot closer to running all of its facilities on renewable energy – at 100%, no less. This would definitely be quite the triumphant achievement regardless of which industry you’re in, where right now, its corporate campuses and data centers happen to be at the 94% mark – and counting towards the magical 100% number. As for their next step, Apple hopes to see such eco-friendly efforts extend to include its numerous retail stores that dot major cities around the globe.
Of course, such ambition is also dependent on one’s perspective, as Apple has not taken into consideration the manufacturing, transport, and use of its actual products, which so far, makes up 98% of its carbon footprint. Still, this is not an accomplishment to be scoffed at where its facilities are concerned, since data centers have been well known to be major culprits when it comes to energy consumption.
Greenpeace has already given praise to Apple earlier this month for the green-ness of their data centers. Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president for environmental initiatives, shared, “No one can ever claim again you can’t have a data center that runs on 100 percent renewable. Once those proof points are out there, it makes it easier for policies to follow.”
