Nokia 'is world leader on mobile phone recycling'
10 June 2010 — 11:57 AM
Green-thinking consumers who recycle their mobile phones may wish to take note of a new sustainability report.
Nokia's new study for 2009 shows it is a world leader at providing handsets that create the smallest carbon footprint of all phones on the market.
"This report gives some great insights into the work Nokia does to enhance sustainability," explains Esko Aho, executive vice-president of corporate relations and responsibility at the firm.
During the year, Nokia continued to lower the carbon dioxide emissions of its mobile devices, ending 2009 with a 12 per cent drop.
This achievement came despite the recession prompting many manufacturers to slash costs on green practices.
Those with a passion for the environment may now be best advised to choose a Nokia model the next time they buy a new handset, perhaps selling their old mobile phone in the process.
Nokia currently produces and sells about a billion devices every year.
