Consumer tech giant Apple has made clear its intention to engage on the climate change debate, joining other companies to weigh in publicly as a company on energy policies, Talking Points Memo reports.

"We don't want to debate climate change. We want to stop it," noted a 2015 Environmental Responsibility Report from Apple, TPM said.

The document outlined Apple's own plan to cut its carbon footprint created by the manufacture of its products and at its technical facilities, TPM noted.

"Our environmental commitment starts in the places where we work — from our corporate campuses to our data centers," the Apple document said.

"Although our facilities now represent only 1 percent of our carbon footprint, they reflect our values, and we want them to act as models for others to follow. This is why we are constantly making our facilities more energy efficient and aggressively investing in renewable energy."

Writing in Environmental Leader, policy strategist Kevin Tuerff notes more entities getting involved in environmental responsibility, adding that even Pope Francis has spoken out, urging "all Catholics to take action on moral and scientific grounds."

A document from the Vatican was distributed in March to the church's 5,000 bishops and 400,000 priests who were urged to share it with their congregations, Tuerff noted.

"More than ever before, customers will be expecting brands to take positive and legitimate actions to reduce their carbon footprint. Those that do so will be rewarded; those that do not will lose market share to "greener" competitors," he said.
