Greenpeace’s latest Green Electronics Survey reveals that 18 companies participated and that there has been a “general improvement in green features” since the 2008 and 2009 surveys. Notebooks, desktops, netbooks, smartphones, mobile phones, monitors and TVs are assessed against the following criteria:

  • The use of hazardous chemical substances (e.g. PVC, BFRs, phthalates, etc.)
  • Power consumption by the products (benchmarked against the Energy Star standard)
  • Product lifecycle (including use of recycled plastic, take-back programmes, etc.)
  • Innovation and marketing (data about the manufacturing footprint, consumer information, etc.).

In desktops, HP Compaq’s 6005 Pro Ultra-slim came out tops while in smartphones the Sony-Ericsson Aspen (M1) beat out Nokia’s N8-00. Once again Apple declined to participate.

One wonders how many buying decisions are influenced by such a survey….?
