Cook has bluntly told investors who are climate change sceptics to ditch their stocks if they do not support his pledge to slash greenhouse gas emissions. Under Cook’s leadership Apple has stepped up its commitment to curbing its environmental impact, pledging to supply 100 per cent of its power from renewable sources and crack down on the use of minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that can fund war and human rights abuses.
