Greenpeace: Nintendo Worst, Nokia Best

Greenpace guide to greener electronics September 2009Once again we find Nintendo at rock bottom in the yearly Top 20 chart from Greenpeace, showing the some of the biggest makers of consumer electronics.

Nintendo scores 1.4 points which is 0.4 points more than last year. The reason for Nintendo still being placed last is due to their use of PVC, poor recycling, high power consumption and increased greenhouse gas emissions, despite a commitment to cut CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gasses by 2% over each previous year.

Along with Nintendo in the poor end of the chart we also find Lenovo, Microsoft and Fujitso.

Little further up, but still in the red’ish zone, we have Acer, Apple, Dell, Motorola etc.

The high-scorers, the winners you might say, is Nokia once again. They stay in 1st place with the same score of 7.5 points just like they did last year. Nokia scores very well on toxic chemical issues due to putting out new models free of PVC since the end of 2005 and aiming for all models to be free of brominated and chlorinated compounds from the start of 2010.

Feels like I am supporting the Green rally in the best way possible. I have got two cell-phones, both are from Nokia.
