Who leads environmental efforts at Apple?
Apple is committed to addressing climate change, to developing green materials for safer products and to using materials as efficiently as possible. In June 2013, Apple CEO Tim Cook appointed Lisa P. Jackson as Vice President of Environmental Initiatives. The Office of Environmental Initiatives works with teams from across Apple to set strategy, engage stakeholders and communicate progress.
Apple’s Board of Directors oversees the CEO and other senior managers in the competent and ethical operation of Apple on a day-to-day basis, and assures that the long-term interests of shareholders are being served. Lisa, who is now Vice President, Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, reports to the CEO. Our integrated approach means that decisions about environmental issues are reviewed at the highest levels of the company. Executive Team members regularly review each new product during its development, focusing on material and design choices, the supply chain, packaging and product energy efficiency.
