Apple has chosen former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson as its new head of environmental policy, CEO Tim Cook announced. Jackson stepped down from the EPA in February.

Jackson will ostensibly help Apple in dealing with the company’s effects on the environment in its manufacturing and product practices, an area of intense scrutiny for the company in recent years. “When you are large, if somebody is looking at something, you are going to be caught up in some way,” Cook said.

But Cook said he doesn’t even mind being held to a higher standard. He noted that Apple owns the largest solar farm and largest fuel cells of any non-energy company.

“We all hold ourselves to high standards,” Cook said.
