Greener electronics HP ranking

Publication - 18 September, 2006
HP scores top points for providing a substitution timeline for future substances on its radar, strong support for Individual Producer Responsibility and for being the first major company to devise an electronic waste take back / recycling metric based on percent of sales.HP loses points for failing to provide timelines for the complete elimination of toxic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and all brominated flame retardants (BFRs). The 2007 date on HP's website is misleading. Their goal is to prepare a substitution plan for BFRs and PVC in 2007, not to eliminate these harmful substances during that year.
