Mobile recycling may be most effective when followed by Nokia buy
9 September 2010 — 6:55 PM
Green-thinking consumers who aim to minimise the impact their technology has on the environment may be wise to recycle a mobile phone and replace it with a Nokia device.
This is because the Finnish brand has been named as the most sustainable technology company by Down Jones Indexes (DJI) for the second year in a row.
Based on an extensive analysis of economic, social and environmental performance, the report by DJI is in-depth and accurate.
It notes Nokia is a firm that excels in eco policy and management systems, as well as the standards it sets for suppliers.
Timo Ihamuotila, Nokia's executive vice-president and chief financial officer, says: "The second consecutive number-one slot across the entire global technology industry is a great recognition of the continued and strong commitment by Nokia employees to sustainable business practices."
The company has been busy in recent weeks, first unveiling the new 5250 mobile and then confirming a release date of September 30ths for its N8.
