Plansee HPM, the high performance materials division of Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, has joined Apple’s Clean Energy Program and announced its plans to exclusively use electricity from renewable sources when producing Apple components from the end of 2022.

With this ‘Clean Energy Program,’ Apple intends to make its value-added chain greener. The company says it has doubled the use of renewables in its supply chain in the last year, equating to ten gigawatts of green energy. The target to be achieved in the coming years is sixteen gigawatts. The company, whose headquarters are in Cupertino, California, USA, plans for its supply chain to be carbon neutral by 2030.

In an effort to make its production activities sustainable, Plansee is working to increase its use of recycled raw materials and increase its use of renewable energy for the manufacture of components for Apple devices.

“We are delighted to be joining Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program and to work with them on new ideas for conserving resources, the circular economy, and reducing our carbon footprint,” stated Wolfgang Köck, Plansee Group executive board member.
