The clean water initiative set up by Apple in China has saved upwards of 25 billion gallons of water. About 76 percent of Apple suppliers are working towards running solely on renewable energy. 40-plus percent of manufacturing partners have committed to making Apple products using one hundred percent clean energy.

By the year’s end, Apple and partner suppliers will have produced six gigawatts of energy from renewable sources all over the globe.
