Greenpeace applauds Apple for cutting conflict minerals, supply chain transparency

In response to Apple’s release last week of their Supplier Responsibility report, Greenpeace posted this comment:

“Apple’s increased transparency about its suppliers is becoming a hallmark of Tim Cook’s leadership at the company. Apple has flexed its muscles in the past to push suppliers to remove hazardous substances from products and provide more renewable energy for data centers, and it is proving the same model can work to reduce the use of conflict minerals. Samsung and other consumer electronics companies should follow Apple’s example and map its suppliers, so the industry can exert its collective influence to build devices that are better for people and the planet.”

    Screw Greenpeace. Everything they do/say is about building their empire and not about “saving the environment”. I spit on Greenpeace.
