Nokia is thought by Greenpeace to be green

Mobile phone handset maker Nokia recently found itself being placed in the top spot in the Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics, ahead of nearest rival Sony Ericsson.

According to Greenpeace, Nokia has made significant efforts to become a greener company and it suggested it continue with its campaigning to make the requirements under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive clearer.

The mobile phone company has made itself available for the rest of the week to answer the questions on the lips of the newspaper's readers, which could include ones about recycling mobile phones.

One area Nokia suggested could be expanded is eco-apps. Head of Nokia's research centre Henry Tirri said: "The things people don't usually think about with location-based systems are aggregate things like traffic information, and collective information about air pollution and other environmental data."

Nokia takes first place in the Greenpeace poll, coming in with a score of 7.3 out of ten.
