Last week Apple committed to being 100% carbon-free by 2030, marking the biggest commitment by a Silicon Valley tech giant in regards to the fight against climate change.

Following in the companies footsteps, today key Apple supplier TSMC joined the RE100 initiative which is a group of corporations, including Apple that are committed to transitioning their operations to 100% renewable energy. While Apple has its eye set on 2030, TSMC is setting it on 2050.

TSMC becomes the first major semiconductor supplier to join the initiative, likely to place pressure on others such as a Samsung to do the same. Helen Clarkson, the CEO of the “The Climate Group,” said:

“We needed a hero company to lead by example in the semiconductor industry and by setting a 100% goal and calling on others to follow, TSMC is doing just that.”

Other Apple suppliers such as Foxconn have made similar commitments in the past. TSMC hopes that its move will encourage other businesses to do the same as the climate crisis only worsens.
