Apple ranks number six on the Green Power Partnership Top 100 list

Apple places number six on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership Top 100 list, which represents the largest green power users within the Green Power Partnership. 

Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. Apple has already achieved 100% renewable for all its U.S. operations (including all of its data centers) and is up to 93% for worldwide operations. 

The EPA’s Green Power Partnership works with a variety of organizations — from Fortune 500 companies to local, state, and federal governments, and a growing number of colleges and universities. Using green power helps reduce the environmental impacts of electricity use and supports the development of new renewable generation capacity nationwide. Organizations can meet EPA Partnership requirements using any combination of three different product options: 1) renewable energy certificates, 2) on-site generation, and 3) utility green power products.
