Lisa Jackson is the vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives at Apple, where she leads the company's work to address climate change and other environmental issues along with programs on education policy and accessibility. Before coming to Apple, Jackson served as the first African-American head of the Environmental Protection Agency, where she oversaw a groundbreaking decision to classify greenhouse gases as pollutants and begin limiting carbon pollution at power plants. At Apple, Jackson led the company in issuing $2.5 billion in green bonds--more than any other corporation--to fund projects like a shift to 100% renewable electricity, a goal the company met in 2018. Through a $300 million clean energy fund launched in China in 2018, the company is helping its suppliers also shift to clean power. A new robot can disassemble iPhones for recycling. Jackson continues to lead the company to find innovative sustainability solutions, including investing in forests to help fight climate change.
