We know that Apple’s overarching goal is for the company’s global corporate operations to be carbon neutral, including all of its offices, stores and data centers running on 100 percent renewable energy.
During its ‘Spring Loaded’ event today, the tech giant unveiled several new and upgraded devices that aim to be environmentally friendly.
Let’s take a look at what these devices are made of:
The new iMac is built using a low-carbon aluminum enclosure and 100 percent recycled tin in the solder of its main logic board. Additionally, it’s packed and shipped in a 100 percent wood fibre box from responsibly managed forests. The magnets in its speakers, power connector and fan motor are made with 100 percent recycled rare earth elements.
