Apple Opts Out of O2's Green Rankings for Phones

Apple may be proud of its environmental credentials, but it wants no part of U.K. carrier O2’s new ranking system that gives handsets a rating of one to five based on sustainability–the ecological impact of their raw materials, the manufacturing process, packaging, useful life, energy efficiency and ease of recycling. Other major manufacturers–including Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung–completed O2’s voluntary 63-question survey, but Apple declined, preferring to let its Web site speak for itself.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
