BEIJING, April 22 (TMTPOST) — Multinational tech giant Apple announced on Friday that it has formed a new partnership with China Green Carbon Foundation on supporting the research and exploration of best practices in carbon management and fighting climate change.
Under the deal, Apple and China Green Carbon Foundation will also work to increase the quantity and quality of carbon sinks in China and establish a network of partners.
China is rich in forest resources. However, most of the country’s forest resources have not yet been certified as quantifiable high-quality forest carbon sinks, which makes it impossible to better promote investment in forest protection and sustainable management of forests. The ecosystem of China’s metropolitan areas also has the potential to capture and store carbon in the atmosphere. But there is no existing method to adequately measure and assess the benefits of the climate ecosystem of those metropolitan areas.
Apple and China Green Carbon Foundation’s partnership will help promote the classification and prioritization of carbon sink zones in Sichuan Province. In addition,d88.com尊龙下载地址, Apple will also provide support for a pilot project in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, that aims to demonstrate Chinese cities’ potential in carbon neutralization and combating climate change.
The project will help establish planning and implementation guidelines for forest carbon sinks in China, making preparation for quality carbon sink projects. The project will strengthen Apple’s efforts in using nature to achieve carbon neutralization in China. Starting from 2015, Apple has been working on a series of forest protection projects and environmental protection in China. Apple plans to achieve full carbon neutralization on its global supply chain by 2030. Almost all Apple’s suppliers that are headquartered in China have promised to transition to 100% renewable energy to achieve carbon neutralization.
