    Fujitsu moves up to 13th place from 15th, with an increased score of 3.9 points. Fujitsu gains two points on the energy criteria, one for adopting a target for reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 6 percent below FY1990 levels by the end of FY2012 and another for providing a certificate of third-party verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

    Fujitsu scores highest on energy issues. It is rewarded for supporting the need for GHG emissions to peak by 2015 and for industrialized countries to cut GHG emissions by up to 30 percent. It also gains points for reporting that 100 percent of its notebook and tablet PCs released globally comply with the latest Energy Star standard. Fujitsu reports GHG emissions from its own operations for 2008, which have reduced from 2007. Although it has a new target to increase its use of renewable energy sources to three times FY2007 levels by the end of FY2012, there is no data on Fujitsu’s use of renewable energy in FY2007 globally and therefore it fails to score any points; figures for the use of renewable energy as a percentage are only provided for Europe, where at least 15 percent of purchased electricity was renewable in 2007.

The latest edition of the Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics exposes the widening gap between companies that make good on their promises to clean up, and those that don't. While some of the top electronics manufacturers are failing to keep their environmental commitments, others are innovating and making significant gains in phasing out toxic chemicals, increasing energy efficiency, and making it easier for consumers to recycle old products.

This slideshow highlights Greenpeace’s 2010 Version 16 ranking of the 18 top manufacturers of personal computers, mobile phones, TVs and game consoles according to their policies on toxic chemicals, recycling and climate change.
