HP tops Greenpeace’s green electronics chart
HP has taken the top spot from Nokia in this year’s Greenpeace guide to greener electronics.
Greenpeace’s guide recognises mobile phone, TV and computer manufacturers that Greenpeace believes follow policies and practices that consider the impact they have on the climate, the design of ‘greener’ products and the sustainability of their operations.
Last year’s top spot was held by Nokia who has subsequently dropped two places to third, with Dell splitting this year’s and last year’s winners by taking second place.
Apple has climbed to fourth place, while major TV manufacturers such as Panasonic, Samsung and Sony have all slipped. LG Electronics has bucked the trend here by climbing one place to 13th, but it’s still behind the other TV giants.
