Apple hops back on board the EPEAT train

Apple backtracks, is now back on-board with EPEAT

After the strange exit from EPEAT, it looks as though iPad maker, Apple, are back on-board. The decision was announced just before the weekend by Bob Mansfield, Apple's Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering. Mansfield had an open letter, which said:

We've recently heard from many loyal Apple customers who were disappointed to learn that we had removed our products from the EPEAT rating system. I recognize that this was a mistake. Starting today, all eligible Apple products are back on EPEAT.

What made Apple have a sudden change of heart? Could it have been the sudden loss of government purchases, or the back lash it would've received not just a few weeks from now, but months, or years from now? Why the decision to pull out of EPEAT in the first place? Tim Cook, would you kindly fly me out to the Apple offices for a one-on-one interview? My shout for lunch.
