Greenpeace Ranks Nokia and Sony Ericsson Greenest Electronics Producers

Published by Stephen Roper on Tagged Eco Friendly

Environmental group Greenpeace International have recently published their quarterly green electronic producers list which sees Nokia and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications ranked as the top two.

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia was once again ranked number one after announcing that all the 2010 devices they make will be PVC and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free.

The companies that are on Greenpeace’s list are ranked based on their use of recycled materials, used products, toxic chemicals and environmental protection.

Some electronic producers like Nokia and Motorola who only produce one product line find it much easier to remove toxic chemicals from their products. Companies that manufacturer white products such as fridges and other home appliances find it much easier to make use of recycled plastics.

Other companies to move up the rankings included Sharp who moved up to 9th for their TV energy efficiency and Panasonic jumped to 6th for pressuring demands on suppliers to stop using toxic chemicals.

Greenpeace are very keen on completely eliminating the use of PVC plastic and BFRs from electronic products as they have known toxic properties which are very hard to decompose and can cause big problems to both humans and the environment at landfill.
