Criticisms of Apple re: Sustainability Reporting
February 5, 2010 Leave a comment
Apple, apparently, is under fire:
- TriplePundit: “Apple Snubs Green Shareholders, Refuses Sustainability Reporting”
- “We recommend that Apple use Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines to prepare the  sustainability report and use the Carbon Disclosure Project as a means to specifically report on greenhouse gas emissions and reduction efforts.” Online Ethical Investor
- BusinessGreen.com “Apple risks green makeover with CSR snub”
I looked up Apple on the Carbon Disclosure Project, and lo and behold, they’ve been reporting since 2006:
and what standards do they use: GRI?
Bottom line: sustainability reporting is heterogenous and still largely unregulated. Get the facts and assess any company (like Apple) based on those facts.
