Forbes reports that Apple joined Nike, PG&E and others major corporations resigning from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber has been lobbying against climate change legislation.
Catherine A. Novelli, vice president of worldwide government affairs at Apple wrote in a letter Monday to Thomas J. Donohue, the business group's president and chief executive. In it she said:
"We would prefer that the Chamber take a more progressive stance on this issue.Because the Chamber's position differs so sharply with Apple's, we have decided to resign our membership effective immediately."
Kudos to Apple.
