has slammed the world's three largest PC makers, HP, Dell
and Lenovo, for failing to clean up their act and phase out toxic
chemicals in their products.
Environmentalists claim all three have come up short on their promises to stop using polyvinyl
chloride (PVC) plastic and
brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from their products by the end of
this year. Greenpeace looked at 18 companies, and it ranked Dell 13th,
HP 14th, and Lenovo 16th. Japanese toymaker Nintendo was last, and
Fujitsu wasn't much better, ranking 17th.
Looking at the top of the list, Nokia is leading the pack with a score
of 7.4 out of a possible 10. It is being trailed by Samsung, Sony
Ericsson, LGE, Toshiba, Motorola. Sony has dropped from 5th place to
12th, as it has failed to keep pace with progress made by other
companies. Apple ranked 11th, and Greenpeace praised it for dropping
PVC and BFR on its latest products.
