Apple Ties Up with Chinese Wind Turbine Maker to Green Up its Supply Chain
(Beijing) — Apple Inc. has bought a 30% stake in four wind power projects in China as the U.S. tech giant moves to minimize its carbon footprint in the country where most of its products are made.
China's biggest wind turbine manufacturer, Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co., announced Wednesday that Apple had acquired the stake in four of its wholly owned wind plants. The joint venture will also explore the possibility of selling wind energy directly to end users. The total capacity of these plants was not disclosed.
