Default Apple Ranking in Chinese Labor and Environmental Issues: Last

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/report-puts-apple-last-on-labor-environmental-issues-in-china/' target='_blank'>http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile...ssues-in-china/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"A consortium of 36 Chinese environmental groups has published a report (Chinese, PDF) that ranks Apple last among 29 multinational companies in terms of dealing with the environmental impact of its operations in China as well as the environmental impact of its activities."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1296003937.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Not looking particularly good here, Apple. Despite publishing their own report on supplier responsibility in 2010 (for 2009) that uncovered (and remediated?) a number of health and safety issues, this report states that Apple's record on labor and environmental issues appears less than stellar. These are vendors for Apple, and not corporate facilities, making me wonder just how much regard for the bottom line (and shareholder profitability) clashes with regard for health and safety. How much are Apple shareholders willing to spend to alleviate these concerns? Anything? Anyone have a guess?</p>
