"Where it's not feasible to build our own generation, we sign long-term renewable energy purchase contracts, supporting new, local projects that meet our robust renewable energy sourcing principles".

Apple, which set that goal two years ago, said nine more of its suppliers have committed to powering all production with 100% clean energy, bringing the total to 23 out of more than 200 suppliers. "After years of hard work, we're proud to have reached this significant milestone", says Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.

Not everyone on social media believed it, however. For example, around 86 percent of energy needs were met by renewables on March 7, while 143 percent were met on March 11.

Apple added that scrapping the plan would jeopardise development and investments that have already been made in renewable power, according to Reuters.

Over 485 megawatts of wind and solar projects have been developed across six provinces of China to address upstream manufacturing emissions.

Apple achieving 100% renewable energy for all of its operations globally is an impressive feat that begs the question to other corporations around the world: If Apple can do it, why can't you?

From the subsequent corner, however, West Ham switched off and allowed Azpilicueta two bites before he jabbed the ball in. Chelsea survived and found their rhythm through the impressive combination of Eden Hazard, Willian and Alvaro Morata.

As part of its push to become a 100% renewably powered company, Apple has invested in 25 energy projects across the world that provide it with 626 megawatts of green energy capacity, with 15 similar initiatives now under construction.

"We're seeing the benefits of an increasingly competitive clean energy market", said Jackson. When Apple built its first Data center in North Carolina in 2009, it found there were no renewable energy resources available close-by.

Others on that list include a variety of corporate green energy trailblazers ranging from the National Hockey League (NHL) to Netflix, IKEA, University of Tennessee (Knoxville), and the cities of Dallas, Austin, and Portland, Oregon. All in all, the company counts 25 renewable energy projects around the world. These partners include, DSM Engineering Plastics, Arkema and Pegatron.
