Greenpeace Study on Electronics Companies November 25, 2008

Posted by Tom in Uncategorized.

Greenpeace released its “Guide to Greener Electronics” yesterday with some results that many might find surprising. Although many companies portray themselves to be “green” and eco-friendly, Greenpeace’s study found that many companies are not living up to their socially responsible images.

The electronics companies were rated on various criteria including their support for global mandatory reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, disclosure of their own GHG emissions and commitment to reduce their own GHG emissions with timelines. At the top of the ranking overall were Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Samsung. The bottom three were Lenovo, Microsoft and Nintendo. Surprisingly, only Sharp, Fujitsu Siemens and Philips show cull support for necessary cuts of GHG emissions of 30 percent by 2020.
