Apple is now greener than Microsoft
Apple is now "greener" than its rival Microsoft according to the Greener Electronics Guide from Greenpeace. But both companies have still a long way to go until they can beat Samsung and Toshiba who currently leads the "green race".
Greenpeace recently released its seventh version of their Greener Electronics Guide where it ranks electronic companies based on their actions against e-waste and harmful toxic chemicals.
Apple has gained 0.7 points since the last update. Apple have gained more points because of new models have been introduced, mainly the new MacBook Air, that contains less toxic chemicals. But Greenpeace emphasizes their "takeback programme still needs to be global".
While Sony Ericsson drops 6 places, "due to losing points on its e-waste policy and practice," Toshiba and Samsung grab the top spots.
Samsung with their 7.7 "scores points well on toxic chemicals policy. Loses points for incomplete takeback practice." Toshiba who also have 7.7 points continues to improve, "especially on e-waste and recycling policy."
The biggest disappointment is that Nintendo still "remains rooted to the bottom with only a tiny improvement."
You can help make Nintendo score better in the next update by sending Mr Satoru Iwata a letter.
