Green Computing and Ranking of Green IT Companies
« on: April 23, 2012, 10:17:25 PM »
Green computing, the study and practice of efficient and eco-friendly computing resources, is now under the attention of not only environmental organizations, but also businesses from other industries. In recent years, companies in the computer industry have come to realize that going green is in their best interest, both in terms of public relations and reduced costs.


2012 Green IT Company Lists and their rankings:

  • 1st Position: Google
  • 2nd Position: Cisco
  • 3rd Position: Ericsson
  • 4th Position: Fujitsu
  • 5th Position: Vodafone
  • 6th Position : Alcatel-Lucent
  • 7th Position: Sharp
  • 8th Position : Softbank
  • 9th Position: IBM
  • 10th Position : HP


2011 Green IT Company Lists and their rankings:

  • HP, 1st position, 5.9/10
  • DELL, 2nd position, 5.1/10
  • NOKIA, 3rd position, 4.9/10
  • APPLE, 4th position, 4.6/10
  • PHILIPS, 5th position, 4.5/10
  • SONY ERICSSON, 6th position, 4.2/10
  • SAMSUNG, 7th position, 4.1/10
  • LENOVO, 8th position, 3.8/10
  • PANASONIC,9th position, 3.6/10
  • SONY, 10th position, 3.6/10


Ranking criteria:

(1) clean up company's products by eliminating hazardous substances; and
(2) takeback and recycle their products responsibly once they become obsolete.

The two issues are connected. The use of harmful chemicals in electronics prevents their safe recycling when the products
are discarded.
