Selling a used phone could help owners keep track of emissions

Eco-friendly mobile users could sell a used phone and put the cash towards buying a Nokia device with the Eco Profiles technology.

Those with the function are able to keep track of exactly how much energy the phone is using and the size of its gas emissions.

Nokia says it is committed to ensuring every handset it makes is created with the environment in mind.

Eco Profiles includes information on everything from the material the mobile phone is made from to its energy efficiency and its recycling potential.

When buying a Nokia mobile it will include details on the manufacturing process and packaging.

Steps that have been taken in recent times to make handsets more energy efficient include the introduction of a power-saving mode on all smartphones and chargers that take significantly less time to fill a battery.

Nokia currently sells more than one billion devices across the world each year.
