Guide to Greener Electronics



There are many things to be considered in the pursuit of a green workplace:

  • Cutting down on paper usage
  • Environmentally friendly cleaning products
  • Ensuring staff switch electronic devices off when they’re not in use

To name just a few.

Then there’s the procurement side of things: ensuring that the supplies that are purchased for your workplace are as green as possible.

Well ensuring the green credentials of your electronic devices just got easier.

Greenpeace have created a Guide to Greener Electronics to help you make greener decisions for your business. The guide “ranks leading mobile phone, TV and PC manufacturers on policies and practices to reduce their impact on the climate, produce greener products, and make their operations more sustainable.”
