Apple Environment VP Lisa Jackson Speaks About Apple’s Renewable Energy Efforts in Earth Day Live Series

Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson today participated in the Earth Day Live series on Twitch, where she talked about Apple’s environmental efforts.

Jackson started things off by speaking a bit about her background and what inspired her to advocate for the environment and join the EPA prior to taking on her current role at Apple.

Before coming to Apple, I led the Environmental Protection Agency under President Obama. But long before that, I was an 8-year-old girl who saw my neighbors in New Orleans battling illness caused by chemical plants in our backyard. A girl who in 1970, wrote a letter to President Nixon imploring him to do something to protect the health of the people and the environment. That same year, we celebrated Earth Day in the U.S. for the very first time. And by the end of 1970, the EPA had officially opened its doors.

At the time, I had no idea I’d go on to work at the EPA and one day lead it, but I did know that at the heart of my concern for the planet was the health of people. Communities, families, people who deserve a healthy place to live, clean water to drink, and clean air to breathe.

Jackson went on to explain that every individual, business, and organization must take action to address climate change. “Policy is one solution, innovation is another,” she said before delving into Apple’s environmental efforts.

As Apple has said many times in the past, all of its facilities worldwide are run on renewable energy, and it has a program to help suppliers transition to 100 percent renewable energy as well. Apple has also been focusing heavily on using recycled materials in its products, with an ultimate goal of a closed-loop supply chain that relies solely on recycled materials and does not require minerals mined from the earth.

Jackson wrapped up her appearance with an inspiring message for up and coming environmental advocates.

On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we have much to be proud of, much to hope for, and much more to accomplish. Today’s eight year olds are facing even greater challenges, but they also know a thing or two about the urgent work that lies ahead and that the health of our planet and our neighbors is a cause worth fighting for.

Jackson’s full appearance can be watched on Twitch. To celebrate Earth Day, Apple is also highlighting Earth Day related apps in the App Store, but as stores are closed there are no retail store decorations nor is there an Apple Watch activity badge to earn.

Apple Celebrates Earth Day 2020 With App Store Feature

Every year on April 22 we celebrate Earth Day in support of environmental causes, and during a normal year, Apple goes all out with Earth Day-related initiatives, green leaf logos on Apple retail stores, green T-shirts for employees, Earth Day Apple Watch challenges, and more.


This year, amid the ongoing health crisis, Apple’s celebrations are muted, as with retail stores closed, there’s no opportunity for in-store celebrations. Instead, Apple is promoting Earth Day-related apps in its App Store and has shared an Earth Day-themed Apple TV+ short film.


There are several Earth Day categories in the Today section of the ‌App Store‌, highlighting a wide range of apps that are focused on the environment.

In the “Lend a Hand From Home” category, for example, Apple highlights Ecosia, an app that lets you plant trees with searches, and Poshmark, an app for buying second-hand clothes. Happy Cow, an app for finding plant-based food options is promoted, along with Green Kitchen, an app filled with vegetarian recipes.

A “Reconnect with Nature” section features apps for learning about local flora and fauna through pictures taken with the camera, while a Disney+ section highlights new Disneynature films on elephants, dolphins, and penguins.


There’s also an “Explore the Deep Blue Sea” section in the Today portion of the ‌App Store‌ that highlights Apple Arcade game “Beyond Blue, which is described as an open-world adventure where players take on the role of Mirai, a marine biologist who explores a myriad of ocean life.

Last Friday, Apple released a new Earth Day short film narrated by Meryl Streep. “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth” teaches children about the wonders of the planet.


Apple hasn’t shared any other Earth Day-themed features as of yet this year, and unfortunately, with most people social distancing and remaining indoors, Apple has opted not to do an activity challenge for ‌Apple Watch‌ owners. It’s not yet clear if there will be more Earth Day-themed features coming from Apple for the weekend.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of celebrating Earth Day around the world, and the theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action.
