Nokia Dominates O2 Eco Rating

by Mr Mobile on 3 Jun 2011

Nokia has taken top honours in the UK’s only mobile phone sustainability rankings, with its C6-01 and E7-00 handsets being ranked as the United Kingdom’s most sustainable mobile phones by O2’s Eco rating system. Launched by the mobile operator last year and the only rating system of its kind, the Eco rating scheme scores every mobile device based on the environmental impact of the handset, its use in the promotion of a sustainable consumer lifestyle and the manufacturer’s ethical performance.

This allows consumers to make a thoroughly informed choice when it comes to purchasing decisions. “We know more and more customers want this level of product transparency, and we’re very grateful to the handset manufacturers for their engagement,” says Simon Lee-Smith, O2’s head of Devices. Nokia’s top Eco rating is also all the more impressive given that, of the top six most sustainable handsets ranged by O2, Nokia manufactures half.
