Nintendo Ranked Last On Greenpeace List (Again)

Nintendo is once again the least environmentally-friendly electronics company, scoring a 1.8 out of 10 in Greenpeace's Guide to Greener Electronics.

The company scores points with Greenpeace for its PVC-free internal wiring, its ban on phthalates and on the energy efficiency of its low power AC adaptor for the Nintendo DSi. However, it scores zero when it comes to e-waste and its commitment to reduce greenhouse gases. Despite a commitment to cut CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases by two percent over each previous year, Greenpeace says Nintendo's greenhouse gas emissions has actually increased two years in a row.

Microsoft fairs slightly better on the list, but drops to 17th place from 16th with a score of 1.9 due to its backtracking on a commitment to phase out BFRs and PVC by the end of 2010.

Sony scores the best out of the gaming companies with a 5.1 for its use of recycled plastics and renewable energy.
