Challenge Objective

In 2020, after announcing their corporate operations were officially carbon neutral, Apple pledged to make their products carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this goal, they set their emissions for 2015 (38.4 million metric tons CO2e) as the baseline and will aim to reduce them by 75% by 2030. The remaining 25% of gross emissions (9.6 million metric tons CO2e) will be removed using carbon offsets, bringing the net emissions to 0.

For the Maven Environmental Challenge, you’ll be working as an independent journalist and data viz enthusiast. Your task is to use the data provided by Apple in their Environmental Progress Reports to visualize their progress towards becoming carbon neutral in 2030.


About The Data Set

The dataset contains 3 tables, in CSV format. The “Greenhouse Gas Emissions” table contains the sources of Apple’s greenhouse gas emissions from 2015 to 2022 divided by category (corporate & product life cycle), scope (direct scope 1 emissions & indirect scope 2 and 3 emissions), and type (emissions & removals). The “Carbon Footprint by Product” table contains the emissions from the product life cycle of every baseline iPhone model released between 2015-2022. The “Normalizing Factors” table contains Apple’s revenue, market cap, and employees during the same period.
