Greenpeace made a rank of the 18 top manufacturers of personal computers, mobile phones, TVs and games consoles according to their policies on toxic chemicals, recycling and climate change, and this is the result!
Hellow dear followers!
This is our first “Green Note” of the blog, yeah its cool all the gadgets and geek stuff, but we have to take care of our planet. Now we present to you the “Guide to Greener Electronics” made by Greenpeace. Their three goals for that ranking are to get the companies to:
- Clean up their products by eliminating hazardous substances.
- Take back and recycle their products responsibly once they become obsolete.
- Reduce the climate impacts of their operations and products.
And this are the winners from the cleanest to the worst one:
So in the end.. the winner as the most eco-friendly company is Nokia and the most eco-enemy is Nintendo.
This is not the first one, and will not be the last of the rankings that the people of Greenpeace will make about the electronic companies and the e-waste. The first one was made on August of 2006, through this one that is the most recent one on October 2010. They have made a great investigation and analysis to obtain those scores, in our opinion.. excellent work guys.. let’s try to make our planet a little greener!
