According to Greenpeace dated March 2007, Apple got a rating of 2.7 out of 10 in ecology.
This makes Apple bottom of the class!
Lenovo -- the chinese to whom IBM sold its PC activity -- is number one this year. It's all inside out!
Greenpeace commented on Apple performance as follows:
"For a company that claims to lead on product design, it is perhaps surprising to find Apple languishing at the bottom of the scorecard. While other laggards have moved upwards in the Guide, Apple has made no changes to its policies or practices since the launch of the Guide in August 2006. The company scores badly on almost all criteria. Apple fails to embrace the precautionary principle, withholds its full list of regulated substances and provides no timelines for eliminating toxic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and no commitment to phasing out all uses of brominated flame retardants (BFRs). Apple performs poorly on product take back and recycling, but it does report on the amounts of its electronic waste recycled."
Reading this was a shock for me, beleiving they were doing as good as ecology that they were doing at design. Man the logo of Apple is... an apple, right?
As you certianly noticed it the apple is half eaten. So were are they going to dumpt the core? In the street? Jesus...
