Guide to Greener Electronics - Nokia, January 2010

Publication - 7 January, 2010
The 14th (January 2010) Guide to Greener Electronics assessment of Nokia.

Executive summary: Nokia stays in 1st place with a slightly reduced score of 7.3, losing a point for failing to do proactive lobbying for the revised RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances inelectronics) Directive to adopt a methodology for further restrictions of hazardous substances, and immediately ban chlorinated and brominated substances. As of this version ofthe Guide, Criterion C1 has been sharpened to require companies not only to have a chemicals policy underpinned by the precautionary principle, but also to support a revisionof the RoHS Directive that bans further harmful substances, specifically brominated flame retardants (BFRs),chlorinated flame retardants (CFRs) and PVC vinyl plastic.
