Finnish makers Nokia took the top spots for sustainable living, environmental impact and ethical record.

Nokia has taken the top two spots in the leading mobile provider O2’s Eco ranking of sustainable handsets. Nokia’s models C6-01 and E7-00 both scored 4.1 out of 5 for a combination of their environmental impact, contribution to sustainable living and the ethical record of the manufacturer. Surely, Nokia has scored in all aspects to take the cake.

Not too far behind, Samsung’s Galaxy Mini and Galaxy Ace, Sony Ericcsson’s X8 and Nokia’s C7-02, shared the next place in the rankings with a score of 4 out of 5. These rankings cover 90% of the handsets that O2 sells and also included Blackberry models manufactured by Research In Motion, for the first time. These  aspects made the rankings comprehensive covering all the manufacturers.

The inputs for the rankings are gathered from the handset manufacturers – materials used in manufacturing, features that reduce the need for other devices like music players, labor conditions in the supply chain etc.

However, iPhone isn’t included in the rankings. Apple has always been heavily criticized over the environmental impact of iPhone and for working conditions at factories in China run by Foxconn.

O2 believes that this level of product transparency is required by the customers and this is just the first step towards bringing more transparency in the whole system. Let’s see what spans out in the future out of this initiative!
