Nokia and Apple ranked high in the Greenpeace "Guide to Greener Electronics"

Nokia and Apple ranked high in the Greenpeace
Nokia is 3rd and Apple 4th in the annual Greenpeace ranking of sustainable electronics manufacturing, where the crown is taken by HP. Nokia has long been labeled the greenest cell phone company out there, while Apple seems to have improved on green products and sustainable operations quite a bit, but scores poorly on energy.

Besides the Finns' exceptional focus on environmentally-friendly production for its whole lineup, which the company claims is 100% recyclable after the time comes to part with your handset, the largest phone maker in the world is also making handsets like the recent Nokia 700.

It's free of pollutants like PVC, RFR and BFR, similar to all Nokia phones, but also constructed using materials like bio-plastics, recycled plastics and recycled metals, and those efforts haven't escaped the attention of Greenpeace.

Sony Ericsson and Samsung are also at commendable places - sixth and seventh, respectively - but LG and RIM are at the bottom of the ranking scale.

its good to care about the environment, but to completely ignore the long list of human rights violations that are continuing even to this day... just makes me not care what you think, green peace.

Is this a joke that Apple is up there? I guess humans aren't as important to them as the environment...
