Finland’s Nokia does the best job of using minimal amounts of hazardous chemicals, according to a report from Greenpeace. The environmental organization’s “Guide to Greener Electronics” ranks 14 major computer and mobile phone producers on their use of potentially harmful chemicals and other substances within products, as well as their recycling initiatives.
Since the start of 2006, Nokia has not included any polyvinyl chloride (PVC)—a plastic used for wire and cable insulation that creates toxic pollution when disposed of improperly—in any of its products. In addition, by the start of 2007, the company will cease the use of brominated flame retardants (BFR), a substance used within circuit boards and casings. Nokia shared the top rank with U.S.-based Dell, which was praised for providing consumers with programs to help dispose of unwanted computer hardware and other materials.
