HP Scores Highest in Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics

Hewlett-Packard was the top scorer in Greenpeace’s 2011 Guide to Greener Electronics, scoring 5.9 out of 10, and displacing Nokia, which had scored the highest for the last three years. Overall, Greenpeace, an environmental advocate organization, noted that HP is the “strongest on sustainable operations and energy criteria.” Nokia came in second, followed by Apple.

Now in its 17th edition, the Greenpeace Guide ranks 15 leading mobile phone, TV, and PC manufacturers on their environmental policies and practices for reducing their impact on the climate, producing greener products, and making their operations more environmentally sustainable. Greenpeace ranked the companies in three areas: Energy & Climate, Greener Products, and Sustainable Operations.

In the printer category, Greenpeace noted HP’s recycling of depleted ink cartridges, noting that HP has used more than 20,000 tons of recycled plastic resin in 760 million ink print cartridges from 2005 to 2009. HP’s goal is to use a total of 100 million pounds (45,000 tons) of recycled plastic in printers, including ink cartridges, between 2007 and 2011. Greenpeace’s Report Card on HP’s environmental initiatives and programs can be downloaded here.

HP was followed by Dell, which scored 5.1 out of 10. Samsung came in seventh, scoring 4.1 out of 10, while Panasonic came in ninth, and Sharp came in 11th. The Greenpeace Guide can be accessed here.
