We first released our 'Guide to Greener Electronics' in August 2006. The guide ranks the 14 top manufacturers of personal computers and mobile phones according to their policies on toxic chemicals and recycling.
In this fifth issue of the Guide, Nokia maintains top spot with Sony Ericsson close behind. Dell and Lenovo tie for third place. Sony is the biggest mover and together with LGE has moved out of the red zone. Apple, Panasonic, Acer, Toshiba and Samsung move down the ranking for failing to make any additional improvements. HP is the only constant faller in the guide and is now in 13th position.
