Ibiden, a Japanese component supplier for Apple, has pledged to power all Apple manufacturing with 100 percent renewable energy.
This will make Ibiden the first company in Japan to do so, and marks a milestone in Apple’s goal of ensuring all of its partners join in on shunning fossil fuels.
Ibiden will invest in over 20 renewable energy facilities, including one of the largest floating solar photovoltaic systems in Japan. The transition to clean ever will exceed energy requirements for Apple and contribute to national Japanese renewable energy goals.
Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President for Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives said: “We’re proud to partner with suppliers like Ibiden who recognise that renewable energy investments are good for the environment and good for business. As we continue our push to power our global operations with 100 percent renewable energy, it is more important than ever that we help our manufacturing partners make the same transition to cleaner sources, and set an example for other companies to follow.”
