Lisa Jackson, who left her post as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief earlier this year, has joined Apple as vice president for environmental initiatives, the San Jose Mercury News reported Wednesday.

Dana Hull writes Jackson said in an official statement that Apple aims to remove toxins in products and use renewable energy in its workplaces.

Apple plans to use SunPower solar panels, Bloom Energy fuel cells and other green materials to run its 500,000-square-foot data center in western North Carolina, Hull reports.

“Jackson can make Apple the top environmental leader in the tech sector by helping the company use its influence to push electric utilities and governments to provide the clean energy that both Apple and America need right now,” Gary Cook, senior information technology analyst at environment advocate Greenpeace, told the Mercury News.
