Greenpeace Scores Apple Lowest in E-Waste Report Card

Greenpeace Scores Apple Lowest in E-Waste Report Card

by , 2:20 PM EST, December 8th, 2006

Greenpeace USA announced Friday that Apple Computer was rated at the bottom of its list of green electronics manufacturers. "Despite being a leader in innovation and design," the non-profit organization said, "Apple has made absolutely no improvements to its policies or practices since the ranking was first released three months ago." The second edition of the guide was released on Wednesday, and ranked Apple last of the 14 companies rated.

The report rates companies higher that have made public commitments to "eliminate the use of the most hazardous chemicals in their products and acknowledged that they bear individual responsibility for financing the take-back and responsible reuse or recycling of their own-brand discarded products."

The Mac Observer is investigating data being provided by Greenpeace USA.
