On Monday, Apple published its 2015 Environmental Responsibility report. And the findings -- to say nothing of the admissions -- are noteworthy.

According to the Cupertino, California-based Mac maker, a company that continues to publicly demonstrate its plan to "go green" wherever possible, great progress has been made over the last year, although Apple readily admits it can do more to mitigate its carbon footprint.

In fact, Apple says manufacturing emissions actually climbed by approximately 5% due to the massive amount of gadget production the company saw last year. However, on a very positive note, the company admits that all of its US operations can now boast of being powered via renewable energy. In terms of its worldwide facilities, 87% of operations are also deemed renewable, although the company's retail stores still have a long way to go before their usage of renewable energy becomes truly impressive.

One of the biggest headline-making excerpts from today's report is the statement by Apple that: "We donít want to debate climate change. We want to stop it." We're told that Apple's escalating efforts to go green represent the company's commitment to stopping the climate change it fears.
