Nokia Continues Drive For Greener Mobile Phones

Nokia - described as the world's leading mobile phone company - has a good green record, according to one publication.

Individuals concerned about environmental issues such as mobile phone recycling may be encouraged to hear that Nokia holds first place in the Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics.

Nokia has a rating of 7.3 out of ten, with Sony Ericsson following closely behind. Greenpeace suggested that in order to boost its score, it needs to continue to lobby to make sure that the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment legislation details clearer requirements.

The mobile phone company is set to join newspaper the Guardian for a discussion about its environmental efforts and track record.

Commenting on the potential for eco-apps to be created, Henry Tirri, head of Nokia's research centre, told the publication: "The things people don't usually think about with location-based systems are aggregate things like traffic information and collective information about air pollution and other environmental data."

Nokia is available all this week on the newspaper's website to answer the questions of those concerned about the green future of electronics, including mobile phone recycling.
