Apple partners with The Conservation Fund to protect U.S. working forests

Updated

The Conservation Fund has announced a partnership with Apple to conserve more than 36,000 acres of working forests — more than 32,400 acres in Maine and more than 3,600 acres in North Carolina. Apple will receive a “steady supply of sustainably harvested timber” for its paper and packaging. Lisa Jackson, Apple Vice President of Environmental Initiatives, posted on Medium that the company “is striving to supply 100 percent of the virgin fibers used in its paper and packaging from sustainably managed forests or controlled wood sources.” Jackson calls the initiative “the beginning of a worldwide effort” for the company.
