Our favourite tree huggers have proclaimed Lenovo to be the most eco-friendly electronics firm, as reported by the BBC. On a related note; Apple Inc. was pissed that they only scored 2.7 out of 10 on the said Greenpeace report.
Who would have thought that an organisation which prides itself in producing hip and fashionable products like the accursed iPod could rank so low? Unsuprisingly, Apple had this to say (quoting the BBC article):
In response, Apple said in a statement: “We disagree with Greenpeace’s rating and the criteria.”
The company added: “Apple has a strong environmental track record and has led the industry in restricting and banning toxic substances such as mercury, cadmium and hexavalent chromium, as well as many brominated flame retardants.”
Well, that’s what they think… obviously Greenpeace doesn’t agree 🙂
