The company has been challengimg itself by asking bold questions like: Can we power a global business with the sun, wind, and water? Apple also said that it's continuing to push towards moving its suppliers to renewable energy, with 7 of them now promising to make the jump. As part of a batch of Earth Day 2017 videos it uploaded today, Apple expanded on something it first told Vice News Tonight last night; there's an employee whose specialty is producing fake sweat for testing on the company's various products. Reportedly, the paper that is being used in its packaging is 99% recycled. Fix and reuse are much better ways to extend the value of the original mined materials. The two discussed renewable energy, President Donald Trump and climate change. "I think a product that lasts is really important, and a lot of people buy Apple products because they know they do last", Jackson said. "We still have a long way to go and a lot to learn, but we're making tremendous progress".
In 2016, Apple sourced 96 per cent of the energy used at its global facilities from renewables, helping to reduce its carbon emissions by nearly 585,000 metric tonnes - according to the report. "It's powered by 100 percent renewable energy". Apple even has a name for this: the "closed loop supply chain".

Outside of renewable energy the company also focused on so-called conflict minerals like gold, tantalum, tungsten, tin, and other elements that are indispensable for the modern tech industry, but are usually marred in human rights abuses and disastrous environmental exploitation. In 2016, Apple used 131,000 tonnes of fiber, of which 62 percent was recycled, 38 percent was virgin fiber from responsibly managed sources and less than 1 percent was virgin fiber that did not comply with Apple's sustainable specification. If the company is serious about reducing its own pollution, it needs to develop recycling practices that it and its partners can both use to fix and reuse existing products, not just manufacture new ones. "We believe our goal should be a closed-loop supply chain, where products are built using only renewable resources or recycled material", Apple states in the report. At last check, they've reached 99 per cent recycled/responsibly sourced materials in their product packaging and also working towards counting exclusively on renewable energy to power their work (100% for data centres and 96% for worldwide facilities if you want specifics).
