T4CI is saluting some of the most influential African-American environmentalists and sustainability professionals during Black History Month.
Today we honor Lisa Jackson.
Jackson is Head of Environmental Affairs for Apple. In this role, Jackson oversees Apple’s environmental issues globally. Jackson was the Former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Chief Lisa Jackson. Jackson was the first African-American to serve as the chief of EPA. She left the EPA in 2013, after serving the Obama administration for four years. During her time with the Obama administration, Jackson oversaw the implementation and proposal of several politically divisive air- and water-pollution rules.
