Apple 11th in Greener Electronics Ranking

 

 

Greenpeace has ranked Apple 11th in its Guide to Greener Electronics. The organization ranks the top market leaders of electronics on their policies and practices on toxic chemicals and take-back.

 

Apple scored a 4.5 out of possible 10 because of its policy of putting products on the market free of BFRs and PVC. The MacBook Air's mercury free LCD display and bromine-free iPod enclosures.

 

Apple was dinged for not improving the environmental performance of the widely popular iPhone.

 

The top scoring companies, Sony and Sony Ericsson, only scored slightly above a 5 according to the guide.

 

 

 

A quick look at the December 2007 Greener Guide shows a global drop by most of the companies.

 

Our recommendation to electronics companies wanting to score a 10 on the next guide. Start manufacturing oxygen and reduce your waste to only unicorn dreams.
