AS PART of a USD $430BN commitment in US investments over the next five years, Apple has announced a USD $1BN new campus and engineering hub in North Carolina.

Little has been revealed about the project, except that it will be built at an unspecified location in the state’s Research Triangle area.

The company is set to create 3,000 new jobs in machine learning, artificial intelligence and software engineering at the site once completed.

The technology giant has also pledged to establish a USD $100M fund to support schools and community initiatives in the greater Raleigh-Durham area and across the state.

The firm will also contribute USD $110 million in infrastructure spending to the 80 North Carolina counties with the greatest need.

These funds are planned to go towards sorely needed broadband, roads and bridges, and public school upgrades.

The project is expected to generate more than USD $1.5BN for the North Carolina economy.

In 2018, Apple announced that the company would create 20,000 new jobs in the United States by 2023.

The announcement of the North Carolina campus puts it well within reaching that target.

While little is known about the campus, Apple has committed to building the site in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

To date, nearly 60 of Apple’s US sites are LEED certified, while the entire company is carbon neutral for all of its operations in the US and internationally.

The tech giant has also committed to be 100 percent carbon neutral for its entire supply chain and products by 2030.

Apple has become well known for its innovative architectural spaces, in 2017 opening the impressive space-ship-styled Apple Park, a gigantic circle housing 260,000 square meters of office space.
