Apple Quits U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Posted in General Business,Sustainable/Green by ebs4pos on October 6, 2009

Apple has become the latest company to resign from the United States Chamber of Commerce over climate policy.

Three large electric utilities resigned from the chamber in recent weeks for the same reason.

The chamber has been critical of efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming.

“We strongly object to the chamber’s recent comments opposing the E.P.A.’s effort to limit greenhouse gases,” wrote Catherine A. Novelli, the vice president of worldwide government affairs at Apple, in a letter to the chamber on Monday.

The resignation was effective immediately.
