Apple is one of the most environmentally friendly technology companies in the world. The company setup a Web site last year to be as transparent as possible, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to satisfy a Chinese environmental group who have criticized the company.
Apple “only care[s] about the price and quality and not the environmental and social responsibility issues. In some ways they drive the suppliers to cut corners to win their contracts,” IPE spokesperson Ma Jun told Reuters. “We’ve found that Apple isn’t honoring its commitment in ensuring its supply chain’s work safety and environmental responsibility and giving dignity and respect to the workers.”
