Apple has announced that it will gift 'The Roundhouse' with environmental upgrades. The Roundhouse is the location of Apple's annual music festival in London.

Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, tweeted the news:

"Apple Music Fest gives a gift to the Roundhouse: energy & Environmental upgrades.Leaving it better than we find it."

Jackson pointed to the Apple Music Festival FAQ which reveals some of the improvements the company will be doing to the facility.

Are you taking good care of the Roundhouse?
You bet. To show our love, we’re even giving the 168-year-old building an environmental makeover. We’re making major upgrades to the lighting, plumbing, and HVAC systems; installing recycling and composting bins; arranging to turn used fryer oil into biofuel; buying renewable energy credits to cover the Roundhouse's September electricity use; and offering reusable water bottles instead of plastic ones. We expect these improvements to reduce the Roundhouse’s annual carbon emissions by 60 tons, save 60,000 gallons of water a year, and divert more than 1,600 kilograms of waste from landfills.

This year, the festival started on September 19th and will run 10 consecutive nights.
