“We believe that business, at its best, serves the public good, empowers people around the world, and binds us together as never before.”

-Apple’s CEO Tim Cook

We are committed to demonstrating that business can and should be a force for good. Achieving that takes innovation, collaboration, and a focus on serving others. It also means leading with our values in the technology we make, the way we make it, and how we treat people and the planet we share. We’re always working to leave the world better than we found it, and to create powerful tools that empower others to do the same.

The initiatives described in this report and index speak to our long-standing commitment to advancing initiatives across ESG topics:

Environmental

Since 2020, we have been carbon neutral for our corporate operations. Building on this achievement, we set an ambitious and urgent goal to make carbon neutral products by 2030. And our green chemistry and recycling innovations are moving us closer than ever to one day make our products without taking from the earth.

In all of this work, we’re partnering with communities and local leaders to make sure our environmental efforts are also a force for equity and justice.

Social

At Apple, we work every day to put people first - by empowering them with accessible technology, being a force for equity and opportunity, creating an inclusive and diverse work environment, and respecting the human rights of everyone whose lives we touch. And, as COVID-19 has brought everyone’s health into sharp focus, we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our communities, customers, supplier employees, and teams.

Governance

We embed transparency and accountability at every level of our company. Apple’s Board and governance structure helps foster principled actions, informed and effective decision-making, and appropriate monitoring of our compliance and performance.

Embedded within our ESG efforts are a few key values that have long been foundational to the company we’ve built:
