apple to hire environmental experts

Apple’s LinkedIn page for China has revealed that the Cupertino based tech giant is seeking to expand hiring in some key areas in China. Among them are environmental affairs, security and retail. Environmentalists have long been opposed to Apple’s manufacturing practices. Foxconn, Apple’s largest manufacturing partner, contracts for a great deal of technology companies’ manufacturing. Apple always aims to be ahead of the curve, and their aluminum and glass devices are arguably more environmentally friendly (and recyclable) than the plastic offerings by their competitors. We’ll have to wait and see if these new hires will lead to more environmentally conscious manufacturing processes from Apple for our favorite iDevices.
