Apple held talks with Chinese environmental groups earlier this month after the U.S. tech giant was criticized for using manufacturers accused of polluting the environment in China.

The Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE), a group based in Beijing, said it held the talks with Apple following a request made by the company. IPE called the initiation of talks a positive sign, given that it was the first time Apple had responded to the environmental groups’ concerns about the company’s suppliers. Macworld
