CeBIT talks green, but the industry has some way to go says Greenpeace Survey
Author: Greenpeace International, Published on: 5 March 2008
The Sony Vaio TZ11 notebook, the Sony Ericsson T650i mobile phone and the Sony Ericsson P1i PDA come out on top in Greenpeace's "Searching for Greener Electronics" survey, released today at CeBIT. But, the race for a green electronic product has not been won yet, each of these products scored just over half of the possible 100 points available to win. Fourteen major electronics brands agreed to provide information for the survey, submitting information on their most environmentally friendly products - desktops, notebooks, mobile phones and PDAs (personal digital assistants). Thirty seven products were awarded points against green design criteria including: the substitution of hazardous chemical substances, energy efficiency and 'recyclability'. [Refers to improvements in products by Apple, Nokia.
