Designing green products includes considering the environmental impact of the materials used to make them. From the glass, plastic, and metal in our products to the paper and ink in our packaging, our goal is to continue leading the industry in reducing or eliminating environmentally harmful substances.

The greatest environmental challenge facing our industry today is the presence of arsenic, brominated flame retardants (BFRs), mercury, phthalates, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in products. In keeping with our philosophy over the last decade, Apple is not waiting for legislation to ban these substances. Not only is every Mac, iPod, and iPhone free of PVC2 and BFRs, we are also qualifying thousands of components to be free of elemental bromine and chlorine, putting us years ahead of anyone in the industry. In addition, all MacBook Pro models feature displays with mercury-free backlighting and arsenic-free glass.

Responsible manufacturing.


Apple is committed to ensuring that working conditions in our supply chain are safe, workers are treated with respect and dignity, and manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible. View our Supplier Code of Conduct as well as our supplier audit reports


Energy efficiency.


The majority of greenhouse gas emissions Apple accounts for are produced when you plug in our products and start using them. That’s why we design all our products to be as energy efficient as possible. Take Mac mini, for example. It uses as little as a quarter of the power consumed by a typical lightbulb,4 making it the most energy-efficient desktop computer in the world.

Because Apple designs both the hardware and the software required for this kind of smart power management, we’re able to increase the efficiency of every product we make. In fact, Apple is the only company in the industry whose entire desktop and notebook product lines meet the strict energy efficiency requirements set by the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program.
