Sustainability: What about Apple's new devices?

Apple held its first event of the year yesterday evening. Updates for the Apple Card, Apple TV, iMac and iPad Pro were revealed and a new color for the iPhone and AirTags was presented. Today we take a look again at the sustainability of these products and which initiatives Apple has taken to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Because in keeping with the Earth Week, they have once again highlighted their own initiatives.

So you already operate your offices, shops and data centers in a completely climate-neutral manner until 2030 should manage the entire supply chain, including suppliers and raw material suppliers, sustainably. At the same time, 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide are to be offset every year until then and beyond.

2020 a major goal has already been achieved: climate neutrality in our own ranks

If we take a closer look at the presented products, there were also some lasting insights. This is how the new Apple TV remote control is made from recycled aluminum (proportion: 100 percent), there were no major updates on the Apple TV itself. It remains to be seen whether this year the emissions will drop below 58 Kilograms can be pressed.

There were some nice new colors on the iMac, and there were also some thoughts on sustainability. Large parts of the packaging can be recycled, 100 Percentage of rare earths in magnets (these make 99 Percentage of the use of rare earths from) were recycled. This has a positive impact on the environmental balance.

This year we made a conscious decision to use nature as the setting

The new iPad Pro has again reduced its ecological footprint when it comes to sustainability. So only aluminum comes, which is to 100 Percent recycled was used, and the rare earths in the loudspeakers, for example, are exclusively recycled. The proportion of recyclable plastic is also increasing.

Own opinion:

Personally, I wouldn’t see myself as an “Apple Fanboy”, but I still praise Apple in the highest tones because of its own initiatives. Of course, something can always be done better, especially when it comes to repairing your own devices, but in recent years people have made an effort and have already achieved a lot. Nevertheless, the more climate-friendly way is still the same: not buying a new device at all.
