Wipro tops Greenpeace’s greenest electronic company list

BANGALORE, INDIA: Indian technology company Wipro has taken the top spot in Greenpeace’s annual Guide to Greener Electronics. Ranking companies based on their commitment and progress in three environmental criteria - energy and climate, greener products and sustainable operations, Wipro knocked HP off the top spot in its first appearance in the international guide.

According to Greenpeace, the companies have made efforts to remove harmful chemicals from their products, but not doing more to address the use of what the organization refers to as ‘dirty energy’ in the companies’ manufacturing and supply chains, which continues to have a significant impact on climate change.

“Wipro has set a new benchmark for sustainability, not only in India but across the globe that will have a long-term impact in shaping the green energy debate in the electronics industry. The rest of the electronics sector should follow in the footsteps of Wipro's climate leadership,” said Abhishek Pratap, India Senior Campaigner, Greenpeace.
