Singapore’s land scarcity is not a constraint for Apple, which is drawing 32 megawatts of power from solar panels on more than 800 rooftops.

In China, the company extracts more than 485 megawatts from wind and solar projects across six provinces of China to address upstream manufacturing emissions.

A partnership with solar company Daini Denryoku in Japan gives the IT giant access to more than 300 rooftop solar systems that generate 18,000 megawatt-hours of clean energy every year.
These are part of Apple’s commitment to combat climate change and create a healthier environment.
The company has announced that its global facilities are powered with 100 percent clean energy. This achievement includes retail stores, offices, data centres and co-located facilities in 43 countries.
It 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 commitment to 23.
“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,” said Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.
