Apple's first retail store in India, which will open in Mumbai on 18 April 2023, has focussed on diversity and sustainability.
According to Deirdre O’Brien, senior vice president - retail, Apple, the store's 100-member staff consists of 50% women and the employees can speak in 25 different languages.
With regards to sustainability, it has a dedicated solar array and zero reliance on fossil fuels for store operations. The store is operationally carbon neutral, running on 100 percent renewable energy.
The store aims to be a space where customers can explore Apple products and services, and also learn how to get more out of their devices through free 'Today at Apple' sessions.

Apple BKC is a reflection of Mumbai’s vibrant culture and brings together the best of Apple in a beautiful, welcoming space for connection and community.”
