Nintendo once again ended up in last place in the 14th edition of Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics. Microsoft’s there to keep them company though, while Sony is still sitting in the middle of the earth-friendliness spectrum.
Nintendo once again ended up in last place in the 14th edition of Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics. The company has consistently ranked at the bottom of the list in the guide’s last three editions.
In this edition, Nintendo has a score of 1.4 out of a possible 10. The continued existence of PVC in Nintendo consoles is among the problems listed. Nintendo already said that PVS is subject to early withdrawal, although the guide notes that no timeline has been given.
Microsoft is right there in at the bottom with Nintendo, edging out the Wii and DS maker by only one point and placing 17th out of 18 companies. At 2.4, Microsoft’s score actually fell from 2.7 due to “[failure] to support strong chemicals legislation.”
Of the big three, Sony ranked the highest at 7th place. The company maintained its overall 5.1 score with a better energy total, but Greenpeace says that Sony still has to lobby for stronger chemicals legislation.
