A surprising league table?

Am I the only one to be surprised by some of the placings in the league table of eco-friendly electronics firms? OK, so Apple is probably not at the top of Greenpeace’s Christmas card list but who would have thought that Lenovo would top the table and that companies like Sony and Toshiba would be placed so low… Is this really a table of eco-friendly electronics firms or would those at the top of the list be better described as the ones that cause the least damage? I am not sure that eo-friendly and electronics firms were ever really meant to be in the same sentence together.

Greenpeace’s own article on this is interesting and this image provides a reminder of the damage and chaos that the IT industry needs to continue to take responsibility for – and do something about.
