Three years ago, Apple said it planned to make its facilities 100 percent run on renewable energy. It’s 96 percent of the way there, Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of environmental and social initiatives told Vice (in a video clip) last week.

Apple says it will source materials for its products from recycled and renewable resources to eliminate precious metal mining, and questionable human and environmental practices, in its supply chain.

Jackson said the move “is important because it’s where technology as a sector should be going.”
