Newsweek's Greenest Tech Companies in the US (2012)

Each year Newsweek compiles lists of all things green. This is their fourth annual look at the most environmentally-friendly companies. For this list they compared America’s largest tech companies according to their environmental footprint, management (policies, initiatives, controversies), and transparency. To generate ratings and compile these lists they partnered with Trucost and Sustainalytics, two leading research companies. The methodology was developed in consultation with an advisory panel of experts in corporate sustainability. Here is Newsweek's list of the top 15 American tech companies and their corresponding scores:
