This is an insight into the personal cost of e-waste. Thousands of tonnes of e-waste such as discarded PCs, mobile phones and TVs, are dumped in Africa and Asia every year. Greenpeace research shows that some of this waste is exported from Europe to Pakistan. Images Greenpeace / Kate Davison Toxics E-Waste Documentation in Ghana The majority of second-hand electrical goods that are exported to Ghana from developed countries are beyond repair and are either dumped or recycled in a crude fashion. In the yards, unprotected workers, many of them children, dismantle computers and TVs with little more then stones in search of metals that can be sold. The remaining plastic, cables and casing is either burnt or simply dumped.

Green Electronics - The Search Continues
Since August 2006 Greenpeace has assessed the environmental policies of consumer electronics companies through its Guide to Greener Electronics. Initially this quarterly publication focused on leading computer and mobile phone producers and their policies with regards to hazardous chemicals used in their products and the waste generated by their branded products. Since then the Guide has evolved to include the 18 top manufacturers of personal computers, mobile phones, televisions, and games consoles. It now assesses their policies on toxic chemicals, recycling, energy efficiency and climate change mitigation. These reports have contributed towards motivating producers to take responsibility for the environmental impacts caused by modern consumer electronics. They have helped shape policies of many electronics companies that now far exceed policies that were in place in 2006 as well as legislative requirements. As companies have made increasingly stronger commitments to eliminate toxic chemicals, increase their products energy efficiency and improve their recycling efforts by embracing financial responsibility for their electronic waste, Greenpeace has sought to comprehensively assess the state of green products coming into the global marketplace, looking even beyond its initial criteria in the Guide to Greener Electronics. Using information submitted by companies in late 2007, Greenpeace published the first edition of its Green Products Survey in early 2008. Unlike the electronics Guide described above, which focuses on overall corporate policies and practice, this survey evaluates the products that the manufacturers themselves consider to be their greenest. The first edition revealed no products that could claim the title of a truly green product, with only a few scores barely reaching a total score of 5 out of 10. In 2008, we invited the companies to submit their greenest models again, to find out if new product line-ups showed improved environmental performances, and to once again

Protection Agency. Points were also given for a number of Unfortunately not all companies invited took the opportunity to showcase the environmental performance of their products. The companies that refused to take part in the survey were: Apple, Asus, Microsoft, Nintendo, Palm and Philips Because Microsoft and Nintendo opted not to take part in the survey, and only Sony submitted game consoles for review, it has not been possible to rank game consoles. In addition to desktop and notebook computers, mobile phones and smart phones, which were also assessed in 2007, the categories of LCD and plasma screen televisions and LCD computer monitors have been included in this edition. In total we received 50 products from 15 companies. A maximum of 100 points could be reached. The total points for each product were adjusted to a possible top score of ten. Because the assessment criteria are often specific to a product category i.e. laptops are not compared with mobile phones, etc, comparisons are only possible within a product category. In addition one product category other areas such as providing detailed power consumption data to consumers. Product lifecycle, including criteria such as recyclability rate and use of recycled plastic in the product. Long warranty periods and good take-back programmes were also rewarded. Availability of data that enables assessment of the energy taken to manufacture the products as well as special innovations that help to reduce the total burden on the environment.
The Green Electronics Survey
The principles behind this years survey were the same as last years: leading manufacturers were directly invited to submit their greenest products via an assessment form that was sent to them. In addition, the forms were published on the Greenpeace website and other forums to enable smaller manufacturers to participate as well. Each company was allowed to submit three products per product category, which we then assessed and scored against our criteria. To make certain that the survey was as up-to-date as possible upon its publication, we also offered companies the opportunity to submit products that, while unreleased at the time we contacted them, would be on the market by 1 January 2009. If a company submitted more than one product in a category we chose the highest-scoring device for inclusion in the report. Once assessments were completed, companies were invited to review them to ensure accurate product information. The products submitted were assessed against four broad groups of criteria: Use of hazardous chemical substances, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), brominated flame retardants (BFRs), antimony, phthalates, beryllium and a number of other chemicals. Power consumption of the products, assessed by comparing them with the Energy Star standards of the US Environmental

Lenovo takes first place with its ThinkCentre 58/58p model; last year, Lenovos product had the lowest score of all submitted desktop computers. The Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo E7935 E-Star 4 is only one-tenth of a point behind in second place. The products submitted by Dell and Hewlett Packard did not reach the 5 points half-way mark, and Acer, who did not take part in the survey last year, scored well below 4 points and finds itself in last place. Unfortunately, no desktop (or notebook) computer submitted is entirely PVC or BFR-free, which means that computers still lag behind other product categories when it comes to the use of hazardous chemicals.

The Motorola V9 and Nokia 3110 Evolve are ranked second and third respectively, with only one-tenth of a point separating them, while the Sony Ericsson C905 and LG KT520 stay just short of the half-way 5 points mark this is still less than one point behind the leader. A major step has been made in the use of chemicals, with all but the LG phone claiming to be PVC-free and Samsungs phone being free of BFRs, well below the commonly used socalled halogen-free industry limit of 900ppm bromine.
Toshiba takes the top spot with its Portege R600, beating Hewlett Packards Elitebook 2530p by a narrow margin. While the Hewlett Packard product scores much higher in the lifecycle category, Toshiba is ahead of everyone else when it comes to the elimination of toxic chemicals. These are the only products that score above 5 points out of a maximum possible 10. The Lenovo X300 is in third place, followed by the Dell Latitude E-4200. Sony, which last year had the highest-scoring product in this category, is ranked fifth. Neither Panasonics or Acers reached the 4 points mark.

Nokias 6210 Navigator secures first place in this category, ahead of the Sony Ericsson G900. Both models are PVC-free, but Nokia gets more points due to better energy efficiency and the products lifecycle. Hewlett Packards iPAQ is third, ahead of the Blackberry Pearl, which lost a lot of points in the lifecycle criteria and for poor energy efficiency, and did not even meet the Energy Star standard. Hewlett Packards PDA lagged in the area of hazardous chemicals phase out.
The clear winner and the highest-scoring overall product is the Lenovo L2440x widescreen monitor, being free of PVC and BFRs as well as other chemicals such as beryllium and antimony. No other monitor submitted has eliminated the use of PVC and BFRs, although Lenovos definition of free allows use of BFRs and PVC up to a limit of 900ppm bromine or chlorine. The Fujitsu Siemens SCENICVIEW P22W-5 ECO gets second place and has eliminated the use of beryllium and also uses zero watts of energy in sleep and stand-by modes. Third and fourth places are taken by Samsungs and LG Electronics products, which scored highly in energy efficiency. The products submitted by Hewlett Packard and Dell also scored more than 5 points, but Acers fell short, particularly in the lifecycle criteria.

There was a tight race for the top spot for televisions that was ultimately won by the Sharp LC-52GX5. This model scores best overall even though it does not lead in any of the four sets of scoring criteria. The Sony KDL-32JEI takes second place and leads in the lifecycle criteria. These two televisions are sold only in Japan. The Panasonic television is ranked last among the three but has the best performance when it comes to the reduction of hazardous chemicals used. Unfortunately, LG Electronics had to pull its submission, when its LCD model televisions release was delayed past the publication date of this report.

Observations and the ways forward
Our second survey showed companies making significant improvements over the last year while also leaving significant scope for further gains. Taking the top scores within each criteria and product category, a pathway to the design of truly green electronics products becomes clear. Companies are still achieving piecemeal improvements but this need not be the case for example, using the technologies employed by the current market leaders and thus combining the best characteristics of the submitted desktop products, a significantly greener product could already be on the market, and a score of well over 7 points in this survey could be achievable. On top of this, since several companies now have clear phase-out dates for PVC and BFRs for their entire product range their potential score could be pushed above 8 points. Now is the time for manufacturers to combine their best green practices and put them forth in complete and integrated fashion into the marketplace.
It is disappointing that Apple has, for a second year running, decided not to take part in this survey, especially since its new line-up of MacBooks, with drastic PVC and BFR reduction and high energy efficiency, could have scored well. Phase out use of PVC and BFRs in consumer electronic products. In our 2008 survey, we see more products reducing their uses of hazardous PVC and BFRs and a number moving towards becoming PVC and BFR-free. Its imperative that designing out these toxic chemicals continues; it will have a positive environmental impact and create financial incentives for companies to take responsibility for their waste. Go beyond RoHS exemptions. The use of RoHS exemptions was seen to decrease in the 2008 survey. Companies are proving, with increasing frequency, that they no longer need RoHS exemptions to make successful, highly-functional and profitable consumer electronics. Greenpeace has compiled a long list of products offering alternatives for each of the RoHS exemptions (see http://www.greenpeace.org/raw/content/international/assets/ binaries/ngo-rohs-submission.pdf) Strengthen the RoHS list. RoHS currently only regulates a limited list of hazardous chemicals while the list of products or components that avoid the use of additional hazardous chemicals (PVC, BFRs, antimony, phthalates and beryllium), as seen in the 2008 survey, continues to grow. More and more often producers and their component and material suppliers are designing new models in anticipation of these chemicals being included in an revised RoHS Directive; it is high time to strengthen the list so that it reflects the markets readiness to comply and levels the playing field for the industry leaders. Make free mean free. Industry standards for halogen-free commonly allow use of bromine (in BFRs) and chlorine (in PVC), creating an unnecessary loophole that allows for the formation of toxic chemicals including halogenated dioxins under some recycling and disposal operations, especially open burning. For Greenpeace, this level is unacceptable: free should mean as close to zero as possible. For more information, see page 5 of the document New Improved Ranking Criteria Explained, available at: www.greenpeace.org/international/press/reports/ improved-criteria-explained.pdf
Designing out toxic chemicals
Significant gains have been made on the reduction of hazardous chemicals since the first survey commissioned in 2007. The number of RoHS exemptions used by companies decreased; it has become commonplace to see products, especially mobile phones, use only two or three RoHS exemptions (see Annex 1 for a fuller explanation of RoHS exemptions). A total of six mobile phones and smartphone/PDAs were PVC free, although most used an unacceptably high threshold of 900ppm for chlorine and bromine. Key mobile products (the Motorola Razr V9 and the Samsung F268) showed that it is possible to eliminate levels of hazardous PVC and BFRs, respectively, to much lower threshold levels. The survey also witnessed the first product introduced to the marketplace that is PVC, BFR, antimony, beryllium and phthalate free the Lenovo L2440x widescreen monitor. Sadly, there is still no notebook manufacturer that manages to produce PVC and BFR-free products at the time of the survey. A number of companies have announced they will phase out use of PVC and BFRs in 2009, which would mean that under the current criteria it should be possible to manufacture products scoring well over 8 points in this survey.
Energy efficient products
Beyond Energy Star. Climate change is now a global priority - it is likely that we are currently seeing a fast technological jump in energy efficiency because this field of innovation has been otherwise ignored for decades. Energy Star (see Annex 1 for more details) provides a well-recognised benchmark for energy efficiency. Our survey shows that these current standards can already be surpassed for the devices that we assessed, and should therefore be considered to provide a minimum baseline below which a company should not even considering marketing a product. On the other hand, it would seem that there is scope for a significant strengthening of future standards of energy efficiency new products, marketed after this survey was undertaken, demonstrate that they are able to comfortably beat the records already identified in our survey. The US Environmental Protection Agency has already adopted a new approach, where the much tighter Energy Star 5.0 standards, which will launch for computers in July 2009, will be introduced once 25% of products are in compliance with Energy Star 4.0. This approach should also be considered by legislators drafting future mandatory requirements, to get the worst, least energy efficient products off the market as soon as possible. Certain products, such as desktops, use more energy and materials in production and are less energy efficienct during consumer use. Information for consumers. Making products energy efficient is not enough. Consumers need information as to how to make the best use of their devices with regard to energy use. There are no initiatives reaching very far in providing this information to consumers, and one could reasonably expect much more from companies who publicly express their concerns and communicate their efforts about tackling climate change. Guidelines or even a standard for the electronics industry to follow should be in place.
the battery price is of the total price of the device, the more points awarded. Monitors are usually not upgradeable. Instead, the manufacturers replacement policy for monitors showing pixel defects have been analysed and points have been awarded by comparing the company policy with the ISO standard. Televisions are not upgradeable, so no points could be awarded. Instead the overall score for a televisions product lifecycle criterion was adjusted by a factor of 1.2 to remain consistent with a total of 30 points for this set of criteria. Warranty Points were awarded according to the number of years for which products are under manufacturer warranty on the global market. The longer the warranty time given by the manufacturer, the less likely it is that the consumer will have to replace a device before it is outdated. Availability of spare parts Similarly to the scoring for warranty, products were awarded points for every year that a consumer is able to obtain spare parts for a product after production has ceased. The longer these spare parts are available the less likely it is that the consumer will dispose of a product rather than repair it.
(30 out of the total of 100 points a product can achieve) Consumer electronics are known for their short and continuously diminishing lifecycles that are increasing the burden on the environment. A longer warranty period, designing products that can be upgraded rather than replaced and making spare parts available long after the production of the device has been discontinued all help to encourage consumers to keep using the products longer. Upgradeability
Recyclability Products were given points for the extent to which they are upgradeable by the user, with clear directions on how to upgrade parts being given in the user manual. For computers, upgradeable parts included the system memory, the hard drive, the graphics card (GPU), the processor (CPU) and the optical drive (CD/DVD). Parts that are usually replaced rather than upgraded (such as fans in computers, for example) were not included. For mobile phones and PDAs, upgradeable parts included the battery and memory cards. In addition, points have been allocated according to the price of the battery compared with the price of the actual device. Since the battery usually needs earlier replacement and expensive batteries are an incentive for the consumer to discard the product rather than to simply replace the battery. The smaller the percentage Because the recyclability rate is difficult to define and compare between products, the definition of the European Union Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was applied. This directive gives a definition of recycling that excludes energy recovery. Energy recovery is a means of generating energy by directly incinerating combustible waste, with or without other waste, and recovering the heat. Indeed, energy recovery from combustion eliminates the possibility to effectively reuse waste through material recycling and therefore cannot be considered true recycling. The directive also demands a legal minimum percentage of recyclability per weight of the device. Computers, for example, need to be at least 65% recyclable. Points were awarded according to how much a device exceeds the legal minimum recyclability rate of the WEEE directive.
In the 2008 survey, when reviewing the companies submissions, we were confronted by figures claiming recyclability rates that were unlikely to be matched in practice. Such figures presumably do not take into account the destruction of certain materials during recovery processes, for example, discounting some plastics or resins that will be destroyed during the recovery of metal parts in a smelter. Although smelting of e-waste is considered a state-of-the-art recycling process for recovering metals in electronic scrap, the plastics in the scrap (for example, whole mobile phones or printed circuit boards) are not materially recovered. Therefore the maximum points that could be obtained from this criterion were reduced, and additional points were awarded instead if companies could provide an independent assessment backing up their recyclability claims. Use of recycled plastic Points were awarded for products using significant amounts of recycled plastics, and additional innovation points were awarded for products that use mostly post-consumer recycled plastic rather than just postindustrial recycled plastic. The increased demand for post-consumer plastic drives the waste collection of these plastics via take-back practices and encourages toxic elimination in design, in turn making plastics more easily recyclable. Additionally, recycling saves the energy embodied in materials, reducing the impacts on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Coding of plastic parts Coding plastic parts of electronic products is important to ensure that they are treated and recycled properly at the end of life of the product. In many instances only the larger plastic components in a product are coded. Points were awarded for products that also code plastic parts weighing less than 25g, the limit usually applied under an ISO standard. Take-back The companies take-back programmes were analysed to see whether they focused on individual financial responsibility for the recycling and disposal of the submitted products in the geographic locations where they were sold. The better the take-back programme, which must be cost-free to the consumer or last owner, and the better the information provided to the consumer about where the products can be returned to at their end-of-life, the more points were awarded.
Innovation and marketing
(10 out of the total of 100 points a product can achieve) Energy during production The energy used to manufacture a product is as important to investigate as the energy it takes to power a device during consumer use. Reducing energy during production plays an important role in reducing the impact on natural resources and the climate. Unfortunately, there is no existing global standard that allows for comparing products under this category. Therefore, points were awarded to products for which companies have an energy lifecycle analysis that takes into account a significant part of the production chain of that particular product model. Activities that should be included when calculating the energy taken to make a product include the extraction and refining of natural resources, production of materials (e.g. plastics), the manufacturing of parts provided by suppliers, the manufacturing of parts by the brand owner, the shipping of parts to the assembly facility, the assembly itself and the distribution of the products to importers and wholesalers. Points were awarded for each of the major stages included in the assessment. However, companies that only calculate the energy of the final assembly stage of production were not awarded any points. Visibility and promotion Electronics companies spend huge amounts of money advertising and promoting their products. The more visible green products are, the more likely they are going to be purchased by consumers. To determine this visibility, the amount of website navigation (such as the number of clicks or drop-down menus) required to reach the specifications of a product was assessed. The less website navigation needed, the more points awarded. The average of a number of major websites visited was used and it is possible that the sites accessed for this assessment have since changed. Other innovations Green innovations going beyond common practices were awarded with additional points. These include mercury-free and more energy-efficient LED lights in screens, a significant weight percentage of post-consumer recycled plastic, zero watt stand-by power use, or manufacturing extremely light or durable products.

While only one product scored over 5 points in the 2007 survey, this year three out of the five submitted products reach the halfway mark. The winner is the Samsung SGH-F268, a remarkable achievement since last years survey when the Samsung phone was in the last place. It is also the only product to be free of BFRs, at levels well below the industry standard of 900ppm. The Motorola MOTORAZR V9 scores particularly well in avoiding hazardous chemicals and is the only product to be free of beryllium and its compounds. The Nokia 3310 Evolve obtains the third place; Nokia also submitted the recently released 7200 Supernova, which is the first mobile phone to be free of BFRs (albeit using a 900ppm limit) but unfortunately scores less than the Nokia 3110 Evolve overall despite its strong performance under the hazardous chemicals criteria. Fourth place goes to the Sony Ericsson, which falls just short of the 5 points mark. Only the LGE KT520 was declared not to be PVC-free and it is this performance in chemicals that is likely to have resulted in its obtaining fifth place, even though there has been an improvement by LG Electronics in its scoring over the previous survey. Overall, there has been a significant improvement with regards to the reduction in RoHS exemptions still being used by the companies, with only Nokia relying on more than two exemptions in its products (six in total). Innovation points were awarded to Motorola, for its very low threshold for declaring its product to be PVC-free, and to Nokia for using bio-plastic in the cover of its phone. However, Nokia did not provide additional information on what type of bio-plastic it is using or how it is grown and therefore the possible maximum environmental benefit (and innovation points for this survey) in using this bio-plastic could not be assessed.

With its 6210 Navigator, Nokia is the clear winner in the smart phone/PDA category. While it scores less than the winning mobile phone it is the best scoring PDA mainly because it is the most energy efficient and Nokia provides a lot of information to its customers on how to save power. Second place goes to the Sony Ericsson G900, which did particularly well in the chemicals category. The Hewlett Packard iPAQ910 is third, while the Blackberry Pearl 8310 is the only phone whose power supply does not meet the new Energy Star requirements. No special points were awarded in this product category. It should be pointed out that, for phones and PDAs, no real independent assessments of the claimed recyclability rates were provided. The recyclability rates provided fluctuate widely and it is likely that some are overly optimistic. When combining the best scores for each set of criteria it becomes obvious that, while the currently-achievable score is lower than for mobile phones, companies should be able to already produce PDAs that score significantly higher than at present.

The highest-scoring product across all product categories is a monitor. The Lenovo L2440x wide is the first computer monitor to be free of PVC and BFRs, albeit using a limit of 900ppm chlorine and bromine. It is also free of beryllium, phthalates and antimony. Its weakest link in a very strong chemicals score is the five RoHS exemptions it still uses. It almost reaches the 7-points mark and is far ahead if its competitors. The Fujitsu Siemens SCENICVIEW P22W-5 Eco is the runner-up and scores special points for zero watt power use in sleep and off modes. It is also the only model equipped with a hard-off switch. The Samsung 2443BW reaches third place and together with the LG Electronics W2252TE exceeds the Energy Star minimum qualification criteria by 50% in most power modes. Three models, the winning Lenovo, the HP L1950 in fifth place and the Dell E2009W in sixth, get innovation points for using significant (at least 20%) post-consumer plastic sources. The Lenovo also uses LED backlights.

The VAIO Z-Series: Power and Portability in Perfect Balance
Premium design and advanced features for discerning business users Miniaturisation technology including 12 layer motherboard True 16:9 wide screen X-black LCD display with enhanced durability and 100% colour fidelity Stamina Mode and LED display for extended battery life Light but very durable advanced carbon fibre construction Ultra-fast fully integrated 7.2Mbps 3G WWAN mobile broadband VAIO Z-Series offers executives and professionals the ultimate in
uncompromised mobility. The design was evolved directly from user experience, ensuring rigorous practicality behind the matchless visual appeal. Sonys engineering remarkably and craftsmanship platform deliver based on superlative a functionality compact from 12 a portable uniquely layer
motherboard. The provision of VAIO everywair WWAN technology1 on selected models means that ultra-fast mobile broadband speeds of up to 7.2Mbps are possible using HSDPA mobile data networks. So on the move, there really is no compromise.
This is the culmination of ten years of VAIO innovation, said Hidetoshi Takigawa, Marketing Director for VAIO of Europe. Incorporating feedback from our discerning and highly demanding customers, the VAIO Z embodies everything the brand stands for cutting edge excellence in technology, exceptional ergonomincs and bold, iconic design. This is a notebook everyone would be proud to own. Every aspect of the physical design of the VAIO Z has been refined to a perfect blend of form and function. Internally, the unique, custom-designed 12 layer motherboard means a smaller footprint, still further reduced by additional component miniaturisation. The case is constructed from advanced carbon fibre materials typically associated with the world of F1 racing and the aerospace industry. This means tremendous strength yet remarkable portability: the VAIO Z weighs less than 1.5kg but is tested to withstand a drop of up to 72cm while operational and up to 90cm when powered down. The keyboard looks outstanding thanks to a single, beautifully brush-finished aluminium panel through which the keys rise, and which also forms the palm rest. The precision engineered isolation key spacing and delicately concave key surfaces mean typing is fast, accurate and comfortable. A positive but silent action places the final seal of quality on this vital aspect of the notebook. The unique look of the VAIO Z owes much to the cylindrical hinge between the body and the screen. This provides an ergonomic and secure grip for carrying, while internally it serves as the holding space for the battery. With impeccable design logic, the end caps house the power cable input and power button respectively. The button itself glows elegantly in emerald green when the system is active and pulses gently orange when in standby, artfully complementing the overall styling. The range features an advanced display that combines LED illumination for extended battery life with a true 16:9 wide screen format that eliminates the letterbox effect when viewing wide screen movies. The screen has a super-slim bezel so it delivers a generous 13.1-inch viewable diagonal and lots of workspace thanks to its native WXGA++ (1600 x 900) resolution2.
Sonys X-black LCD display enhancement technology boosts brightness and contrast and ensures vivid colours, and the panel delivers 100% colour fidelity equivalent to 100% of the NTSC format colour space so colours really are true to life. Even the surface finish has been improved to better resist scratching and reduce reflection, ensuring durability and maximum viewing comfort. In order to boost battery life as much as possible, the VAIO Z has a special Stamina Mode switch which allows the user to select between two graphics chipsets. You can choose between lightning fast 3D performance delivered by the NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS GPU or high stamina using integrated Intel graphics. When performance graphics are not required, extended battery life of over 5 hours is possible. This can be all done while the machine is turned on. General performance is assured thanks to the combination of potent Intel Core 2 Duo processors and the new Intel Centrino 2 platform. This boosts everything from multitasking and memory speed to battery life, and assures extremely reliable wireless networking. To ensure really seamless wireless operation, VAIO Smart Network technology allows you to switch between WWAN (3G) networks and WLAN wireless hot spots (802.11 a/b/g/Draft n) without turning the computer off. A special model, designated VGN-Z11VN/X, will be available exclusively online from the Sony Style Store.
