Where Apple stands in its quest for 100% clean energy

Eventually, Jackson said, the company will combine high-quality recycled metals bought from suppliers with those taken from old Apple products returned by customers. "It sounds insane, but we're working on it", the company wrote in its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report published Wednesday.

Apple's long-term concept for a recyclable product. It's an ambitious goal that will require many years of collaboration across multiple Apple teams, our suppliers, and specialty recyclers-but our work is already under way.

In addition to identifying better recycling techniques, Apple's environmental report touted using 100 percent renewable energy in facilities across 24 countries, all of its data centers, and its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

"We still have a long way to go and a lot to learn". "We're making strides toward our commitment to bring four gigawatts of renewable power online by 2020, a key step in reducing our manufacturing footprint". Starting with a vision for replacing raw materials with recycled content is probably not the most effective mechanism for tackling the challenges and identifying opportunities, especially considering the inability to assert whether it is even possible or not, even setting aside the business and economics angle for a moment. If you are not aware, Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 a year ago twice after the device had some serious issues with the battery.The Galaxy Note 7 was never launched in India. But the company acknowledges more can be done. Just as fashion brands regularly destroy entire product runs at the end of a season to prevent their clothes from ending up on people deemed undesirable (if unofficial) brand ambassadors, Apple doesn't want Macs flooding into a resale market, because it would create the expectation that Macs should be priced lower than they are.

The report also detailed environmental milestones for the company.

In celebration of Earth Day 2017, Apple has released a new video series featuring candid interviews with employees leading Apples efforts to address climate change, conserve resources and pioneer safer materials.

At some point, 100% of Apple devices will be made from recycled materials. Instead of just throwing out the old devices, the company could reuse them.
