Lisa Jackson, vice president of environmental initiatives, social policies at Apple, was honored with the annual Environmental Law Institute for their actions on behalf of the planet.
She will be honored not only for her work in charge of the vice presidency of Ma, but also for the service previously provided, as head of the Environmental Protection Agency (Environmental Protection Agency) of the USA, in which he served between 2009 and 2013 appointed by then American President Barack Obama.
The environmental institution cited several works carried out by Jackson that are responsible for changing the direction of how environmental policies should be thought and executed.
Among the major milestones achieved by Apple in terms of environmental policies, we can highlight the 100% green operation of its data centers, offices, stores and headquarters. In addition, we recently talked about a new achievement for the company, which will invest R $ 35 million in a partnership to melt aluminum without emitting carbon monoxide or other polluting gases.
