Andy Baynes leads the Environmental Technologies team at Apple.  He is Apple's environmental strategist to the executive team and is responsible for major programs on toxic-free, energy efficient and recyclable products as well as broader programs covering greenhouse gas emissions, communication and compliance.  During this period, the Company has delivered the most energy efficient, toxic-free and recyclable product designs in the IT sector, winning the 2010 GEELA award and thus enabling Apple to become the first company to achieve a gold EPEAT ranking for all products.  Apple was also the first company to completely eliminate toxic brominated flame-retardants, and mercury from all products, helping to set a transformational wave in the electronics supply chain.   Residing in Silicon Valley with his family, Andy currently serves on the board of directors for POETIC, a non-profit dedicated to the development of therapies for children with cancer and other related disorders.  He holds a Master of Science in Environmental Technology from Imperial College in London.
