As an effort to support social initiatives and sustainability-focused businesses, Apple launched an Impact Accelerator program last year. The program invests in minority-owned businesses specializing in climate change and sustainability.
Shortlisted companies will participate in a 3-month virtual program and stand a chance to become Apple’s suppliers at the end of the program, assisting Apple in its carbon-neutral supply chain goals.
“The businesses we’re partnering with today are poised to become tomorrow’s diverse and innovative industry leaders, creating ripples of change to help communities everywhere adapt to the urgent challenges posed by climate change,” according to Apple’s VP of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives, Lisa Jackson.
Here are some of the shortlisted companies:
- Volt Energy Utility
- Oceti Sakowin Power Authority
- Mosaic Global Transportation
