Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200538404
Are you a creative thinker and self-starter? Do you thrive in a startup-like environment and aspire to be a part of something bigger? We celebrate diversity and the innovation that it spurs in everything we do, from amazing technology to industry-leading environmental efforts. Join Apple, and help us leave the world better than we found it. Today, Apple is carbon neutral for our corporate operations. Since achieving this goal in 2020, we've set an even more ambitious goal — to make our products carbon neutral by 2030, across our entire supply chain and the lifetime energy use of our customers’ devices. This goal is of critical importance — in Apple’s fiscal year 2022, product manufacturing was responsible for 65% of Apple’s comprehensive corporate carbon footprint. The Supplier Carbon Solutions Program will help meet Apple’s 2030 goal by transitioning suppliers to carbon neutrality for their Apple-related operations. This transition hinges on our suppliers having access to cost-effective and high quality decarbonization solutions.
