Woe is Nintendo, for they are apparently on Greenpeace’s shit list.
Games firm Nintendo has come bottom of a ranking of the world’s most eco-friendly electronics firms.
The quarterly Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics ranks 18 electronics firms by how green their production processes and products are.
In the latest guide most firms have seen their ranking plummet as the charity introduced new, stricter guidelines for evaluating companies.
Booooo to Nintendo. But wait…
Nintendo said its scored low because it had not provided data for the survey.
“Greenpeace chose to conduct a survey and produce a report, which graded companies upon the voluntary submission of information,” the firm said in a statement.
“Nintendo decided not to take part in the survey and were therefore ‘ungraded’ in the resulting report.
But Greenpeace countered the company’s statement and insisted it had been graded.
“There is no choice,” Iza Kruszewska, toxics campaigner for Greenpeace, told BBC News.
She said the charity had regularly contacted the games firm since 2007 but had not had any response. The charity had been forced to use information from Nintendo’s website, she said.
“”They’ve decided not to engage,” she said.
So, dance to Greenpeace’s tune or be pummelled by the world media… That’s pretty fair, don’t you think?
Reason MCXXXVI to dislike and distrust Greenpeace, methinks…
