Nokia dominates world’s greenest phones rankings

Nokia dominates world’s greenest phones rankingsIt hasn’t been a great time for Nokia recently. Shares have plummeted, and the announcement of their romance with Microsoft received a rather lukewarm reception, with thousands of workers walking out in protest. The elusive MeeGo has yet to show face one year after it was revealed, and we’ll probably see just one Nokia WP7 handset this year.

But wait! There is some good news for the Finns, courtesy of GoodGuide. The site, which scores products based on health, social and environmental impacts, reckons Nokia makes the greenest phones in the world. Indeed, in the list of 576 phones, Nokia occupies the top 26 positions.

"Our highest-rated cellphones have energy-efficient chargers and are made of environmentally preferable materials," explains GoodGuide. High scores are awarded to companies "implementing green production practices and takeback recycling programs."

HTC and LG score poorly for environmental impact, but the bottom of the table is jam packed with Blackberrys.
