Greenpeace has nobbled the world’s #1 gaming Company Nintendo describing their commitment to the environment as “pitiful”. Also getting a serve is HP, Microsoft and Lenovo who this week, were awarded a multimillion dollar notebook contract for NSW schools.

Nintendo who were ranked 0.8 out of 10 for their lack of “friendly environmental “attitude have been slammed because of their poor policies on toxic chemicals, recycling and climate change.

The company has banned phthalates and is monitoring use of antimony and beryllium and although it is endeavouring to eliminate the use of PVC, it has not set a timeline for its phase out.” Said Greenpeace.

“Nintendo discloses carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from its own operations and commits to cutting CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases by 2 per cent over each previous year. However, Nintendo admits that an increase in business led to a 6 per cent rise in CO2 emissions in 2006.” The environmental group said.

Among the good guys in the Greenpeace rankings were Nokia who finished in first place as well as Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Philips and Sony.

The whole list is as follows:

Nokia: 7.5
Samsung: 6.9
Sony Ericsson: 5.7
Philips: 5.7
Sony: 5.5
LG Electronics: 5.5
Toshiba: 5.3
Motorola: 5.3

Apple: 4.7
Acer: 4.5
Panasonic: 4.3
Dell: 3.7
Lenovo: 3.1
Microsoft: 2.7
