On 17/08/2022, Ethical Consumer viewed Apple Inc's list of subsidiaries on the D&B Hoovers corporate research database, which stated that the company had operations in the countries listed below.

China, Israel, Mexico, Russia & Turkey. Russia was included because Sonnerfeld et al. deemed Apple to be "keeping return options open" in the country in the wake of the Ukraine invasion (…).

At the time of writing Ethical Consumer considered each country listed to be governed by an oppressive regime.

The company therefore lost half a mark in the Human Rights category.
