​1. Apple

Apple has long had a commitment to going 100% renewable at its data centers, a mark it hit all the way back in 2013.

Apple also requires all future data centers to be built in areas with access to renewable resources, so as the company continues to grow it will continue to do so with the environment in mind.

On April 9, 2018, Apple announced that it was globally powered by 100% renewable energy. Included in that statistic are Apple stores, data centers, offices, co-location facilities, and 23 of its suppliers.
