Toshiba drops to 7th place with a reduced score of 5.3, losing points on the chemicals and energy criteria. It drops a point on its understanding of the precautionary principledue to a much poorer explanation of this important principle on Toshiba’s Corporate website, as compared to its PC site. The company also loses points on its commitmentto cutting GHGs, as the proposed cuts are only relative, and on the energy efficiency of its products.
