Guide to Greener Electronics - Sony Ericsson, September 2009

Publication - 30 September, 2009
Sony Ericsson stays in 3rd place with the same score of 6.5. It is one of the best performers on the toxic chemicals criteria of all the ranked brands and also does wellon energy.It is weakest on waste and recycling issues, scoring nothing on use of recycled plastic; there was also an absence of reporting recycling rates of mobile phones as apercentage of past sales. It gains points on its information to consumers about its take-back programme, but loses points for no longer reporting the quantities of e-waste recycled as a percentage of past sales. For more points on e-waste, it needs to continue to increase its lobbying for Individual Producer Responsibility, extend its take-back and recycling programmes, and use recycled plastic across all its products – not just a few models.
