Nokia still tops Greenpeace rankings
Greenpeace released this week its 12th Guide to Greener Electronics, finding Nokia the greenest electronics manufacturer for the fourth straight guide, scoring top marks for “leading competitors on toxic phase out.”
Samsung claimed second for the fourth time in a row, as well, in part for committing to reduce its absolute emissions of greenhouse gasses, even as the company grows.
Sony took the steepest fall in the quarterly green tech guide, dropping from fifth to 12th place, due in part to the company’s failure to extend its take-back program beyond North America. Other video game console makers, once again, didn’t fair well in the guide, as Microsoft claimed the 15th spot, dropping a point due to its “poor recycling policy,” while Nintendo was the caboose on this electronics train, staying in last place and only earning one point out of a possible 15.
