Nokia has been recognised as one of the world’s ‘Best Global Green Brands’ in the 2013 report compiled by Interbrand.
The company is the leading mobile phone manufacturer in the report.
Taking ninth position among the world’s 50 leading brands, Nokia is also commended as a ‘top riser’ for its eco-efforts, marking what Interbrand views as a notable improvement in the company’s performance since the last time the scores were compiled.
The report notes:
“Being green” remains a core business driver for the Nokia brand […] Greener product manufacturing and lifecycle management are clear to see.
Today, all parts of Nokia phones are recyclable, and every model has an “Eco” profile, with “Eco Hero” devices indicating its greenest products.
The report concludes by listing some of the other recent accolades Nokia has received in this area:
…including the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes, Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics, the Carbon Disclosure Project, Forbes’ list of the “World’s Most Sustainable Companies,” and Enough Project’s 2012 “Taking Conflict Out of Consumer Gadgets: Company Rankings on Conflict Minerals” report.

We covered the green credentials of our current eco-hero smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 820, much of which applies to all our phones, in an article last October.
