MacRumors:

The new pledge will cut nearly 6 billion tons of carbon pollution through the year 2030, “an amount equivalent to taking all the cars in the United States off the road for more than 4 years.” Apple’s addition to the pledge doesn’t appear to include any projects debuting exclusively for the new initiative, but the company will seemingly continue to heavily support a positive environmental message, now in partnership with the White House.

Apple has already made a number of moves to battle climate change, including running all of its U.S. operations on 100% renewable energy. The company is scheduled to bring an estimated 1280 megawatts of clean power generation online by the end of 2016. Since 2001, Apple has reduced global corporate carbon emissions by 48%.

Companies that signed Monday’s pledge were promising an “ongoing commitment” to positive environmental action, and pledging support for a “strong” outcome at the climate negotiations taking place in Paris this December.

Other companies signing the pledge on Monday were Alcoa, Bank of America, Berkshire Hathaway Energy, Cargill, Coca-Cola, General Motors, Goldman Sachs, Google, Microsoft, PepsiCo, UPS, and Walmart. The White House press release notes that companies making pledges as part of Monday’s launch represent more than $1.3 trillion in revenue in 2014 and a combined market capitalization of at least $2.5 trillion.
