Greenpeace Applauds Apple for Cutting Conflict Minerals, Supply Chain Transparency

Media release - February 13, 2014
SAN FRANCISCO — In response to Apple's release of its Supplier Responsibility report, Greenpeace released the following statement, from Greenpeace Energy Campaigner Tom Dowdall:
"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."
