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. 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. Using only 5.9W in idle with the display on, it consumes less power than any Mac, and consumes 49 percent less energy than the original MacBook Air. The following table details power consumed in diﬀerent use modes. Power Consumption for 11-inch MacBook Air Mode
• Recipient of the 2002 Faculty Achievement Award in Clinical Research • Author of more than 500 scientific articles and nine books • Recipient of the 2008 Waun Ki Hong Award for Excellence in Team Science The Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Program at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center provides state-of-theart comprehensive care to patients with a broad range of malignancies and hematologic diseases. Our physicians and staff work collaboratively, in partnership with referring physicians, insurers, and managed care providers to provide effective multidisciplinary care for patients and their families. Autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants are established therapies and the treatment of choice for a range of otherwise lethal hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Allogeneic marrow transplantation also is an effective treatment for bone marrow failure states, congenital immune deficiencies and many metabolic diseases. M. D. Anderson maintains a comprehensive stem cell program for children and adults, providing allogeneic and autologous stem cell transplants using bone marrow, blood progenitor cells and umbilical cord blood. Autologous transplants use the patient’s own peripheral blood or marrow, which is collected, stored in a frozen state, and later thawed and given back to the patient after completion of high-dose chemotherapy. Allogeneic transplants involve blood or bone marrow stem cells from an HLA tissue type compatible donor, who may or may not be a relative.
