In a battle of the giants, the software company has subsequently announced its global offices, retail stores and data centres are all running on 100 per cent clean energy.

Apple's shops, offices and data centres across 43 countries have achieved the milestone, said the California-based company, which set out its stall as a major spur to renewables project development as well as a green energy consumer. That's not all because there are 15 more projects coming that will in total give Apple 1.4 gigawatts of green energy production.

While definitely a good thing, Engadget points out that this doesn't mean all of Apple's facilities are directly connected to renewable energy sources.

The push toward renewable energy has included some creative solutions, including 300 solar rooftops in Japan and 800 in Singapore.

This figure does not include Apple's third-party suppliers or manufacturers, although the company is convincing many of those to switch to 100% renewable sources too ...

The company said in its 2017 environmental responsibility report, the most recent available before today, that as of 2016, it powered 96 percent of its operations around the world with 100 percent renewable energy, like solar, hydro and wind power.

This announcement is the culmination of years of investment in clean energy sources for all its operations worldwide.

Apple has hit its target of powering all its facilities with renewable energy, in the latest sign of an industry-wide shift towards clean power.

Its data centres now source 44 per cent of power needs from renewable energy.

Along with its new campus, Apple has 25 renewable energy projects in operation around the world that could generate 626 megawatts of capacity.

"We're not spending any more than we would have", Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president for environment, policy and social initiatives, was quoted as saying in an interview. "How much will you charge me for some of your clean energy?' No". The company says it has also made headway with its manufacturing partners and suppliers, though there's still some way to go.
