Apple has published the Supplier Responsibility Report 2020 which, among other measures, details Apple’s plans to improve the security of its supply chain . This report is based on interviews with more than 52,000 employees in over 49 countries.

The complete document, 115 pages long, begins with a quote by Tim Cook :

Health and safety in the workplace

Then the vice president of operations, Sabih Khan , signs a letter detailing the changes Apple has made to ensure hygiene and good working conditions for employees. Here is an excerpt from it:

There are several measures Apple has taken to ensure that working conditions in all jobs at all its suppliers are optimal . Some of the most important are:

  • Require personal protective equipment during work and in common areas.
  • Provide disinfectant and masks to employees.
  • Improve deep cleaning protocols.
  • Redesign and reconfigure factory floor plans, where necessary, to maintain distances between operators.
  • Apply flexible working hours and staggered shifts to maximize interpersonal space.

Supplier efficiency, water consumption and audits

Along with these measures, and moving away from the current health situation, Apple has shared some numbers and data :

  • The number of suppliers committed to achieving “zero waste” dynamics has increased by 53% over the previous year.
  • More than 115 billion litres of water will be conserved by 2019.
