Greenpeace Gives Bravo to Apple
Greenpeace USA is giving a bravo to Apple for its stand on climate change legislation. They have been part of a large group of lobbyists who are becoming disenchanted with the attitude of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Nike and Johnson and Johnson are two other well known corporations that have already withdrawn from the group.
Apple's message to the Chamber:
"We strongly object to the Chamber's recent comments opposing the EPA's effort to limit greenhouse gases... Apple supports regulating greenhouse gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the Chamber at odds with us in this effort... we have decided to end our membership immediately." -- Catherine A. Novelli, vice president of worldwide government affairs at Apple. Read the letter here (PDF).
Greenpeace is urging two important IT companies Microsoft and IBM to follow Apple's lead.
