Apple's Lisa Jackson is coming out hot against greenhouse gases.
As reported by CNBC, Jackson, Apple's Vice President of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives, sat down on Tuesday with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan at the company's headquarters to talk about a new standard that would make the United States's power grid 100% green by 2035.
The Clean Energy Standard, which aims to remove the United States' power grid off of fossil fuels, could be part of the $3.5 trillion budget resolution that is currently being debated by Congress.
Apple, which is working to become carbon neutral by 2030, is already running on 100% renewable energy for its corporate and retail locations. The company is also adopting more sustainable materials for its products and packaging.
Jackson, who served as the EPA Administrator under President Barack Obama, believes that all companies should be required to report on their carbon emissions in order to make the change.
