Apple Initiates A Project For Economic Stability Of The Forests In China
Apple prolongs its endeavors to keep its operations environment-friendly by signing a new contract with World Wildlife Fund in China to conserve and harvest one million acres of forest. While ensuring economic stability of the forests, Apple wants to use the land for paper production.
“This collaboration between our two organizations will seek to reduce China’s ecological footprint by helping produce more wood from responsibly managed forests within its own borders,” said WWF China CEO Lo Sze Ping in a press release.
One Sunday, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared his plans in a statement, saying he will try to make his company’s Chinese suppliers to utilize the renewable energy for running their factories. Apple has already set an example by partnering up with SunPower Corporation to produce two 20-megawatt solar power plants in China.
Through the aforesaid project, Apple will be able to produce more than required power for entire chain of its offices and stores in China.
Cook realizes that his objective to go green in China is a time taking process but he believes his company can play a pioneering role in China’s green transformation.
“This won’t happen overnight—in fact it will take years—but it’s important work that has to happen, and Apple is in a unique position to take the initiative toward this ambitious goal. It is a responsibility we accept. We are excited to work with leaders in our supply chain who want to be on the cutting edge of China’s green transformation,” Apple CEO said.
Before this, Apple has started a similar project in the US to preserve outdoor heritage.
