Greenpeace recently released a new and upgraded version of its Guide to Greener Electronics (1) wherein Wipro retains the top slot followed by HCL Infosystem in the Indian version.

The international version ranks the IT manufacturing company HP at the top slot, taking the lead over Dell and Nokia in international version.

Three new companies are included in the latest version of the guide. Research in Motion (RIM), manufacturer of Blackberry phone, is included in the international version while Chirag Computers and SAI InfoSystem are included in the Indian version.

While the latest international version of the Guide to Greener Electronics ranks (2) 15 companies across three areas – Energy, Greener Products and Sustainable Operations, it also sets new criteria for companies, challenging them to reduce their carbon footprint across manufacturing, supply chain through to the disposal of their products and to set ambitious goals for the use of renewable energy.

The latest version of the guide also features new criteria for the sourcing of paper, conflict minerals and product life cycle. The Indian version, which is the 11th edition, assesses 4 IT manufacturing companies on the same criteria.

“After the successful notification of the e-waste rule, supported by leading Indian and international electronic companies, we are now challenging leading electronic companies to improve their energy sourcing quality and commit to reduce their growing carbon emissions,” said Greenpeace India Campaigner Abhishek Pratap.

The Government of India recently notified the-waste (handling and management) Rule, 2011. The rule places liability on individual companies to phase out six hazardous chemicals from its products and establish effective e-waste management practices including financial responsibility for recycling of the discarded products of the company. Now it is time for all the global electronics companies in India to follow the Indian electronics companies and frame and implement robust policies to streamline e-waste collection and make recycling effective.
