We've come a long way from the days when critics at Greenpeace used to accuse Apple of espousing environmentally unsound policies. Indeed, just two years ago, the environmental group slapped the Cupertino company with poor scores for its reliance of fossil fuels. With a new report released today, however, Greenpeace now calls Apple "the most innovative and most aggressive" company in Silicon Valley as regards supplying its energy-intensive datacenters with renewable energy.
As tech companies like Apple grow in scale, the corporations commitment to environmental standards comes under increased scrutiny. As part of its updated filing on environmental impact, Apple has stated the company has increased renewable energy use by 114 percent over the last two years.
