Sony Ericsson Wins Greenest Electronics Company Award
Greenpeace has produced it's report on green elecronics companies and Sony Ericsson appears to have come out on top. Although from their graph, Sony looks to be in the same postion but only the joint venture gets a mention and quite frankly I was too bored to read any deeper!
Sony Ericsson are the cream of Greenpeace's Greener Electronics Guide for exceeding Energy Star requirements, making all its models PVC-free and banning the most harmful chemicals from phones launched since January 2008. Although victory isn't so sweet as all the competition seem to have given up the race in favor of new features (are you listening Apple and Microsoft?)
To quote: Greenpeace "The Greener Electronics Guide is our way of getting the electronics industry to face up to the problem of e-waste. We want manufacturers to get rid of harmful chemicals in their products. We want to see an end to the stories of unprotected child laborers scavenging mountains of cast-off gadgets created by society's gizmo-loving ways."
So we should all be buying using our green conscience and not who has the coolest gadgets... I think Greenpeace may struggle to get that one past most folks on PS3News.com.
