Story

On 4th January 2022, Ethical Consumer conducted an internet search to determine what, if any, memberships Apple Inc has with entities considered by Ethical Consumer to be lobby groups. According to the Ethical Consumer lobby group members list, updated in February 2021, Apple was a member of the following lobby groups:

World Business Council for Sustainable Development
Business Roundtable
European Services Forum
World Economic Forum

These groups were regarded by Ethical Consumer as international corporate lobby groups which exerted undue corporate influence on policy-makers in favour of market solutions that were potentially detrimental to the environment and human rights.

Apple Inc lost half a mark under Political Activities.
