In a new report, Apple announced that from now on during the assembly production of iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watch, AirPods, and HomePod there will be less damage to the environment than before.
According to the report, over the past three years, Apple's suppliers sent one million tons of garbage for recycling, saved 34.5 billion liters of water and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 466 thousand tons per year.
The report also highlights Apple's educational programs that enable employees of contractors to gain life and professional skills, as well as finding the way to get a higher education. The Corporation organized training for 3.6 million participants, and in 2018, more than 1,500 employees from supplier companies received higher education thanks to SEED.
Apple is working with suppliers on the ground to help them make their operations environmentally friendly. In particular, the company incurs expenses for the purchase of special equipment and air purification facilities.
