Greenpeace: "HP greenest electronics producer"

Yesterday Greenpeace has announced the results of its 17th “Guide to greener electronics”, in which it ranks 15 major electronics producers based on respect for the environment (or the lack thereof). HP takes over the first spot from Nokia, while newcomer RIM (Blackberry) has by far the worst score. 

HP cleanest electronics producer

HP owes its rise from fourth to first to reducing carbon emissions from its supply chain, reducing its own emissions and advocating for strong climate legislation. Dell rockets from tenth to second place thanks to its high sustainability scores, but scores zero points in the “Clean energy policy advocacy” criterion. Nokia, who had been number one since 2008, drops to third because of energy issues. Apple jumps from ninth to fourth because of a top score in the 'green products' area.

 

LG, Toshiba and RIM (Blackberry) form the bottom three: RIM even received zeroes in six of the thirteen categories. LG and Toshiba are encouraged to improve on energy criteria.

 

Only two of the fifteen producers, HP and Dell, receive more than 50%. Last year, there were eight companies that reached the 'green' marks, but Greenpeace has upgraded its criteria “to keep manufacturers focused on environment and society”.
