In talking up Apple's environmental policies at D11, CEO Tim Cook announced that former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator, Lisa Jackson, will be joining the company reporting directly to Cook. Jackson joins Apple to co-ordinate the environmental policies right across the company.

Cook also took the opportunity to point out that Apple owns and operates the largest solar farm and fuel cell of any non-energy company. All in the name of being kind to the environment.

While her official title escaped Cook at the time, and it's unknown if Jackson will be a vice-president, senior vice-president, or something else entirely, it's nice to see environment getting some higher level personification at Apple, and Apple's leadership getting some additional gender diversity.

What's your take on Apple's latest high-profile hire?
