Apple forges towards Carbon-Free-Production with the first product New MacBook Pro launched.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro will be the first hardware to use a low carbon aluminium as Apple transforms to become 100 per cent carbon neutral across the entire company.
“Apple today unveiled its plan to become carbon neutral across its entire business, manufacturing supply chain, and product life cycle by 2030. The company is already carbon neutral today for its global corporate operations, and this new commitment means that by 2030, every Apple device sold will have net zero climate impact,” Apple said in a Press Release.
The company, which has demonstrated its commitment, has already work with aluminium suppliers as they aspire to be more environmentally friendly.
“As a way of tackling emission of carbon during the production process, the company is engaging suppliers on a carbon-free smelting process. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is the first beneficiary of the new technology,” the Company stated in the release.
Apple is supporting the development of the first-ever direct carbon-free aluminium smelting process through investments and collaboration with two of its aluminum suppliers. The company has announced that the first batch of this low carbon aluminum is currently being used.
Mac Family said the switch is gradual with no clear dates set, but customers will start noticing the change with the MacBook Pro, and thereafter the rest of the MacBook Range.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro is the last new MacBook not offering one of Intel’s tenth generation CPUs. Both MacBook Po and MacBook Air were refreshed to Intel’s current tech in the first half of this year.
