Apple gets involved in actions to protect environment
The former chief of the Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson joining Apple in 2013 will now serve as vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook of Apple wrote in a memo to employees on 23 June 2015.
Under Jackson's leadership as environment chief, Apple has expanded its use of renewable energy and taken more steps to eliminate toxins and protect working forests. Cook hailed the progress already made by Jackson, one of the company's highest-ranking women.
"There's much more to do, not just on the environment, but on other issues we value such as human rights, education, and accessibility of our products to those with physical or developmental challenges," Cook wrote. "Apple can and will play an important role in each of these areas. In her new role, Jackson will manage government affairs for the tech giant and integrate efforts across the company”.
