In addition, another nine of the company's manufacturing partners have committed to ensuring all of their Apple production work is powered by 100 per cent renewable electricity, the tech giant announced.

"We're committed to leaving the world better than we found it", Apple chief executive Tim Cook said in a statement.

Apple recently announced that its business is now completely driven and powered by renewable energy sources.

Apple's renewable energy projects include solar and wind as well as emerging technologies like biogas fuel cells, micro-hydro generation systems and energy storage technologies.

Apple now operating on 100 per cent renewable energy

Apple is building solar arrays and wind farms, biogas fuel cells, micro-hydro generation systems and energy storage technologies - 25 of these projects are now operating, and 15 more are under construction.

Not only does its investment in green energy sources mean it's making a conscious effort to reduce its carbon footprint significantly, it's also financing the green energy economy, with current contracts contributing more than $3 billion in new capital investment around the world.

Apple has joined hands with its partners to develop renewable energy projects for the local communities, states, and even entire countries, spanning across a wide range of clean energy.

What we've accomplished in partnership with Georgia Power and other major corporate energy buyers in the region is a testament to the important role that businesses can play in unlocking access to renewable energy.

"Since 2011, all of Apple's renewable energy projects have reduced greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) by 54 percent from its facilities worldwide and prevented almost 2.1 million metric tons of CO2e from entering the atmosphere", the company said. At Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, a 17-megawatt solar panel installation on the roof and biogas fuel cells bring in clean energy.

Last week, Google said it now holds contracts to purchase 3GW of output from renewable energy projects, allowing it to reach its 100% clean energy target. Like a good neighbor, the facility also sends clean energy back to the grid when the energy demands at the campus are down.

Some obstacles remain before every single unit of power used by the company is 100pc clean, but there are plans in place to change this. Apple wants to stop mining rare mineral for its production processes, and has a long-term goal to create a "closed loop".
