Apple goes green
Having received sustained criticism over a number of years about his company's environmental practices, Apple CEO, Steve Jobs has published an open letter on his company's website.
In the letter, Mr Jobs outlines Apple's plans to remove various toxic materials from the manufacturing processes of future Apple products. Substances slated for reduction or total removal include lead, mercury, arsenic and PVC.
Mr Jobs also scorecards his company's present and planned environmental efforts against rivals HP and Dell, maintaining that Apple is performing significantly better than Green groups would have the public believe.
To complement the more environmentally friendly manufacturing processes, Apple plans to increase the percentage of computers they recycle from around 10% currently, to nearly 20% by the year 2010.
