Gem of the day

Dear Apple

You are so '1970s' on all things environmental compliance. Please hire a Steve Jobs of sustainability.

Best wishes

"In the latest Progress Report on Apple Supplier Responsibility, which was released on Friday, for the first time Apple included the names of 156 companies that together account for 97 percent of Apple's outsourced manufacturing business. The company found facilities that had been breaking air emission and wastewater discharge limits, using factories that were releasing industrial effluent via unapproved outflow pipes and failing to register pollution. In the most egregious cases, Apple said it had suspended business with the violators until improvements were in place." (Via the Guardian)
