Greenpeace's Best Green Electronics

Greenpeace's product survey lists the greenest electronics available to consumers as of the first quarter of 2011. These products were ranked according to their minimization of hazardous substances and energy efficiency. Greenpeace also assessed these products according to how easy they are to recycle as well as the energy they require for production.

According to Greenpeace, the electronics industry is getting greener. Renee Blanchard, Greenpeace International Toxics Campaigner said,"our survey shows that electronics manufacturers have made demonstrable progress over the past few years by producing products that are free of the worst toxic chemicals, more energy efficient and more easily taken back for reuse or recycling. Major brands are responding to consumer demand for greener gadgets, and we expect them to continue to innovate and make all their products, and not just a niche few, with these higher green standards."

Greenpeace tested the greenest models submitted by 14 companies and presented their findings in their product survey. This report evaluated the greenest desktop computers, computer monitors, notebook computers, netbook computers, smartphones, mobile phones and televisions. Here are the best green electronics in each category.

Desktop Computer: HP Compaq 6005 Pro
Computer Monitor: Asus VW-247H-HF
Notebook Computer: Asus UL30A
Netbook Computer: Acer TM8172
Smartphone: Sony Ericsson Aspen
Mobile Phone: Samsung GT-S75550
