Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Mac Pro

Mac Pro Boosts Apple’s Green Cred

Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Mac ProThe latest Mac Pro consumes 68 percent less power in idle mode and its packaging consumes 82 percent less volume than the previous-generation computer, according to Apple.

In its Mac Pro Environmental Report, Apple touts the computer’s sustainability performance as it relates to climate change, energy efficiency, material efficiency and restricted substances.

Most (65 percent) of the Mac Pro’s greenhouse gas emissions come from the production of the product while the second highest percentage (33 percent) comes from customer use (see chart). Apple says the Mac Pro’s emissions total 940 kg CO2e.

Apple says its Mac Pro is extremely material efficient, consuming 74 percent less aluminum and steel compared to earlier versions.

The new Mac Pro’s smaller packaging footprint, which weighs 84 percent less than that of the previous-generation computer, allows three times more units to fit in an airline shipping container, the report says. Additionally, the Mac Pro’s sustainable packaging uses corrugated cardboard made with a minimum of 33 percent post-consumer recycled content.

In November, Apple received final approval to build its sustainable, flying-saucer-shaped headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., that includes a host of green building features.
