Can blog writer first do its own in-depth study for pros and cons of this type of unfounded surveys before writing and may be misleading reader in general? Or else this may be vendetta against Apple, may be highly innovative and responsible organization.

It seems like a combined attack toward Apple from different corner. As far as I know, Apple salutes most of the labour and environmental issues within their limitations and a company much aware about social commitments. I think the Fox con issue is not directly related to Apple and Apple products are one of the most power yielding devices, when compare with any competing products.

I completely agree with you that greenpeace is attempting all this to receive more media attention than anything else. Apple is always responsible towards society and environment.

Yeah it can be considered in that fashion, Big companies are getting advertised freely and it helps to understand their activities and product details too.

In recent time greenpeace is making quite confusing and political remarks. Perhaps, Apple may be far too advanced for them to understand concept of gree technology. People, soon avoid noticing greenpeace comments.

It isn't that Apple is the greenest company on earth - rather its that Greenpeace makes it sound like they aren't doing anything / don't care at all.

Using your referenced link, Apple is ranked 50th out of a list of 500 companies - so they are one of the top 10% greenest companies...  meaning 90% of companies do less / care less.

I support Greenpeace and their actions, but this just feels like a media grab.  Go after the big polluters who actually don't care.

I think Greenpeace does us all a big favor by continually harassing the world's largest companies.  It is a useful way to keep check on these megalithic companies.

Wow! Reading your comment, it seems that Apple is the greenest company on earth? Hmm, See this 2011 Green Rankings and you will change your mind. Your greenest Apple is ranked 50th among 500 US ranked companies.

software's environmental footprint

I thought software was especially minimal in its environmental footprint.  Especially the cloud services that Facebook provides would seem to be devoid of environmental impact.

I'll have to take a closer look at how Greenpeace goes about ranking offenders.  It's been a long time since they made news dodging the French navy, as they staged a direct action against nuclear bomb testing.

It seems Apple may have a technological problem in addition to being bashed by the media. Battery life of iProducts is notoriously short. The better performance of the iProds means battery depletion, and battery depletion means more frequent charging. Apple is not alone in this dilemma--better performing smart phones have the same drawback.

There are also two distinct aspects to a company's greening--its products and its in-house performance. Apple may well be building enviro-friendly facilities--I wonder if that should offset their product shortcomings (per Greenpeace. iFans love their products).
