Greener electronics HP ranking: Fifth Edition

Publication - 19 September, 2007
HP continues its slide down the ranking – now in 13th place and down from 6th position in the first version of the Guide. It has lost points for weakening its support for Individual Producer Responsibility. HP scores top points for providing a substitution timeline for future substances and was the first company to devise an electronic waste take back / recycling metric based on a percentage of sales. HP fails to provide timelines for the complete elimination of toxic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and all brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and therefore scores no points on this criterion.
