Apple Adds Wind Energy in Australia

Apple marks 40 years in Australia with new commitments to protect the planet, including initiatives to advance renewable energy use.

With the purchase of clean energy from the new Upper Burdekin Wind Farm in Queensland, Apple will help address the energy customers use to power their Apple products. Already carbon neutral across all of the company’s global facilities and operations, this project is part of Apple’s goal to become carbon neutral across its entire business, manufacturing supply chain, and product life cycle by 2030.

“We’re proud to celebrate Apple’s long history in Australia, and to deepen our shared commitment to protecting the planet and creating opportunity in people’s lives,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, in a statement. “We’re fortunate to have so many great partners, colleagues, and customers across this country, and we’ll continue working together to make the world a more equitable and just place for all.”

 The Queensland wind farm is Apple’s second project designed specifically to address the electricity customers use to charge their Apple devices. In April, Apple announced a 2,300-acre solar project in Brown County, Texas, which will generate 300 megawatts of electricity once completed later this year. These projects are in addition to the more than 10 gigawatts of clean energy currently operational throughout Apple’s supply chain, part of the company’s work with suppliers to achieve its 2030 climate goal.
