Apple has announced a $300 million (£228m) fund to promote clean energy projects in China.
The suppliers include Catcher Technology, Compal Electronics, Corning Incorporated, Golden Arrow, Jabil, Luxshare-ICT, Pegatron, Solvay, Sunway Communication and Wistron.
The fund, which will be managed through third party DWS Group, will invest in and develop 1GW of green energy projects – equivalent to powering nearly one million homes.
Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives said: “We’re thrilled that so many of our suppliers are participating in the fund and hope this model can be replicated globally to help businesses of all sized make a significant positive impact on our planet.”
Apple launched its Supplier Clean Energy Programme in 2015 – since then, 23 manufacturing partners operating in more than 10 countries have committed to powering all their Apple production with 100% renewable power.
They aim to generate more than 4GW of new clean energy worldwide by 2020 – representing one-third of the iPhone maker’s electricity footprint.
Earlier this year, the Apple announced its global facilities are powered by 100% clean energy.
