Clean up their products by eliminating hazardous substances. Take back and recycle their products responsibly once they become obsolete. Reduce the climate impacts of their operations and products. Ranking Nokia keeps the first place with 7.45 points, Samsung stays at seconds place, and Sony Ericsson ranks at third.
