Guide to Greener Electronics - Philips, June 2009

Publication - 1 July, 2009
Philips falls from 4th to 7th place with a slightly reduced score of 5.3 points. Philips now supports IPR and is committed to actively work towards developing IPR based recycling systems and their supporting financial mechanisms; it doesn’t score more points on this criterion yet, because it now has to put this commitment into practice. Philips also scores a point for its voluntary take-back pilots and for reporting on the recycling rate of the e-waste it collects in Europe and now needs to demonstrate its commitment to taking responsibility for its own e-waste by expanding its take-back programme and improving the information that its provides to its customers.
