Apple has announced that it is investing more than $250 million to improve its campus in the Singapore Ang Mo Kio district. This will provide more space for growth and new roles in artificial intelligence and other key functions.

Apple first opened a facility in Singapore in 1981 to house 72 employees focused on the Apple II. The Singapore team has since grown to 3,600+ members, and the campus now serves as a central hub for Apple’s Asian operations, hosting critical company functions in the region, including software, hardware, services, and support. Apple also has three retail locations in Singapore.

Construction to expand Apple’s Singapore campus will begin later this year. The company’s investment will focus on upgrading two buildings next to Apple’s existing Singapore facilities, with the aim of integrating the properties into a unified campus to encourage collaboration among Apple teams. Apple has been upgrading and expanding the campus over the last decade, boasting a 50% expansion in the hardware technologies center since 2019.

Apple says the expanded Singapore campus will be powered 100% by renewable energy sources and once completed, Apple will aim to receive LEED Gold certification. Apple’s corporate operations have been carbon neutral since 2020 and the company has run all of its facilities using 100% renewable energy since 2018. Apple first began using clean energy solutions in Singapore in 2015, adding solar panels on 800 rooftops.

Singapore is truly a one-of-a-kind place, and we are proud of the connection we’ve built with this dynamic community of creators, learners, and dreamers. With our growing campus, Apple is writing a new chapter in our history here. Our Singapore teams have played an important role in enriching the lives of our customers — and we can’t wait for many more decades of innovation to come.Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO

Apple says it supports 60,000+ jobs in Singapore via direct employment, its supply chain partners, and the iOS app development economy. The company collaborates with several local educational institutions as part of an effort to innovate and develop technology.

In related environmental news, Apple earlier today announced the release of its 2024 Environmental Progress Report. In the report, the company said that it has cut its greenhouse gas emissions by more than half since 2015. Apple is working towards a 2030 carbon neutrality goal.

The proof of Apple’s commitment to climate action is in our progress: We’ve slashed emissions by more than half, all while serving more users than ever before. More hard work is ahead of us, and we’re focused on harnessing the power of innovation and collaboration to maximize our impact.Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives

Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program has produced more than 16.5 gigawatts of clean energy, which has been a large contributor to reducing the carbon footprint of both Apple and its suppliers. The company says its program collectively saved over two billion kilowatt-hours of electricity last year. The company is also working to remove all plastics from its packaging, replacing them with fiber-based alternatives.
