Greener electronics Sony Ericsson ranking: Fifth Edition

Sony Ericsson maintains its position near the top of the ranking, by stating strong support for the Precautionary Principle and Individual Producer Responsibility. The company has a timeline of 1st January 2008 for eliminating the use of BFRs in two remaining applications, and the same timeline for substituting phthalates, beryllium and some uses of antimony compounds. All new models of mobile put on the market from 2006 are free of the worst chemicals like PVC. On the down side, Sony Ericsson loses points for failing to report on the amounts of discarded mobile phones it takes back and recycles.
