Guide to Greener Electronics - Motorola, September 2009

Publication - 30 September, 2009
Motorola remains in 6th place, with a slightly reduced score of 5.3 points, which it loses for only committing to eliminate PVC and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) inmobile devices and not all its products. Motorola scores relatively well on the chemicals criteria and has a goal to eliminate PVC and BFRs in all products introduced after2010, despite the fact that Sony Ericsson has already achieved this goal and Nokia is almost there. Motorola has seven current models (in addition to 52 previously availablemodels) of mobile phone whose circuit boards are free of BFRs, but only two models are free of PVC.
