The giant tech firm achieved this through its renewable energy plans. These include using low-carbon aluminum in its popular iPhone SE units.
Apple said that it will continue using these eco-friendly technologies in its other products to achieve carbon-neutrality until 2030.
“We are proud that so many of our manufacturing partners have joined our urgent work to address the climate crisis by generating more renewable energy around the world,” said Apple’s Vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives, Lisa Jackson.
She added that having clean energy production activities is good for Apple and the environment.

Aside from ensuring carbon neutrality by 2030, the giant iPhone developer is also helping communities greatly affected by the worsening climate change.
One of its programs dedicated to helping people is the “Power for Impact” project, which offers renewable energy supplies to people in areas impacted by climate change.
Thanks to Apple’s Power for Impact program, communities across the globe will receive renewable energy support for their economic and social growth.
