Former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa P. Jackson will become Apple’s top environmental officer, the company’s CEO Tim Cook announced Tuesday.
Cook, who made the announcement at The Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital D11 conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., said Jackson will be reporting directly to him and is “going to be coordinating a lot of this activity across the company.”
One Twitter user wonders what kind of things will be in Jackson’s job description:
If product development is in Jackson’s future, prepare for your next iPhone to cost at least $15,000.
Some Twitter reaction offers Jackson congratulations, while others question the move:
Every now and then the revolving door needs maintenance.
One question that now needs answering is why Apple would need somebody to head up environmental policy for the “least green” tech company when Al Gore has been on the company’s board of directors for over a decade.
