Model MD711, MD712 Apple believes that improving the environmental performance of our business starts with our products. The careful environmental management of our products throughout their life cycles includes controlling the quantity and types of materials used in their manufacture, improving their energy eﬃciency, and designing them for better recyclability. The information below details the environmental performance of the 11-inch MacBook Air as it relates to climate change, energy eﬃciency, material eﬃciency, and restricted substances.1 Date introduced June 10, 2013 Climate Change Greenhouse gas emissions have an impact on the planet’s balance of land, ocean, and air temperatures. Most of Apple’s corporate greenhouse gas emissions come from the production, transport, use, and recycling of its products. Apple seeks to minimize greenhouse gas emissions by setting stringent design-related goals for material and energy eﬃciency. The chart below provides the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the 11-inch MacBook Air over its life cycle. Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 11-inch MacBook Air Recycling, 1% Transport, 5% The 11-inch MacBook Air is designed with the following features to reduce environmental impact: Production, 75% Customer use, 19% • Arsenic-free display glass • Mercury-free LED-backlit display • Brominated flame retardant–free Total greenhouse gas emissions: 320 kg CO2e • PVC-free2 • Recyclable aluminum enclosure Meets ENERGY STAR® Version 5.2 requirements Achieves a Gold rating from EPEAT3 Energy Eﬃciency Because one of the largest portions of product-related greenhouse gas emissions results from actual use, energy efficiency is a key part of each product’s design. Apple products use powerefficient components, and software that intelligently powers them down during periods of inactivity. The result is that MacBook Air is energy efficient right out of the box. The 11-inch MacBook Air outperforms the stringent requirements of the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Computers Version 5.2.
