Susan, definitely :-)

Travelling in India is pretty tough still, given the condition of the traffic flow.

Greenpeace evaluated 16 companies

@Susan, any particular reason why Greenpeace evaluated only these 16 companies ? What about other major companies ? I am curiout to know if other companies are hesitating to participatie in this evaluation.

I believe consumers should start taking more considerations about a company being 'green'

@clairvoyant, I totally agree with you. I think consumers should be made aware about these rankings so that they get an opportunity to support companies which are contributing significantly in keeping the earth green.

it's sad to read that the global players like RIM and Apple are last in the list.

@Jacob, I agree with your opinion. I would expect atleast Apple to take more concrete measures considering the fact that they are financially more stable.

Wipro, the Bangalore-based electronics company, made a grand debut, taking the No. 1 position.

@Susan, thanks for the post. I am glad that bangalore-based electronics company has topped the list. I am sure this will encourage other Indain companies to implement such measures which will help us to keep the earth green.

Interesting point. Maybe the measuring points are changing. 

I agree with Greenpeace when they asked Wipro about updated information on the use of post-consumer recycled plastics. What are they doing with them? How can we improve? How do companies battle with selling more devices with creating less pollution?

This is very interesting, Susan. I didn't realize that there were evaluations like these done on companies. This is great information to get out to the consumer, as I believe consumers should start taking more considerations about a company being 'green' before buying items.
