The U.S Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest not-for-profit commercial federation, representing some 3 million businesses. But it no longer represents Apple Inc. (AAPL).
On Monday, Apple resigned from the Chamber “effective immediately” over the organization’s opposition to the Obama administration’s environmental policies.
In recent weeks, Apple has made a concerted effort to reposition itself as environmental leader. Steve Jobs even gave BusinessWeek a rare interview to push his green agenda.
