Since August 2006 Greenpeace has assessed the environmental
policies of consumer electronics companies through its “Guide to Greener Electronics”. Initially this quarterly publication focused on leading computer and mobile phone producers and their policies with regards to hazardous chemicals used in their products and the waste generated by their branded products. Since then the Guide has evolved to include the 18 top manufacturers of personal computers, mobile phones, televisions, and games consoles. It now assesses their policies on toxic chemicals, recycling, energy efficiency and climate change mitigation. These
reports have contributed towards motivating producers to take responsibility for the environmental impacts caused by modern consumer electronics. They have helped shape policies of many electronics companies that now far exceed policies that were in place in 2006 as well as legislative requirements.
