And not all companies are public. Shareholders might not even enter into it. If a "Mom n' Pop" operation wants to be environmentally sound or contribute to the community and still make a living, who's to tell them they shouldn't?

More to the point, though; I don't see why Dell is so bothered about this. Sure, Apple might not be as 'green' as they claim to be, but who really is?
Unfortunately this isn't exactly the case. Most of these companies are activity pursuing "social responsibility" campaigns to avoid becoming the target of government regulation and oversight.
