Greenpeace Green Electronics Guide November 2011

Greenpeace does a great deal of good work for the environment and just in time for the holiday season they have released Their seventeenth edition of the Guide to Greener Electronics. It is the perfect guide to help consumers make the most environmentally responsible buying decisions for electronics.

This guide is ideal for anyone considering purchasing electronics. Greenpeace has rated the greenest electronics available in the marketplace today. Companies were rated on a scale of 1 to 10 which places them in either a green, yellow or red zone contingent on their performance.

“HP, Dell, Nokia, Apple lead the way by innovative cradle-to-cradle design, use of less toxics as well as use of eco-friendly material in their products.” HP stole the top spot from Nokia because of their high score “when it came to measuring and reducing carbon emissions from its supply chain.”

Here are the top 10 greenest electronics companies:

1. HP 5.9/10
2. Dell 5.1/10
3. Nokia 4.9/10
4. Apple 4.6/10
5. Philips 4.5/10
6. Sony Ericsson 4.2/10
7. Samsung 4.1/10
8. Lenovo 3.8/10
9. Panasonic 3.6/10
