According to the results of a recent survey released by Greenpeace, ASUS has been ranked highest for being environmentally-friendly with their electronic products. It’s no surprise, seeing how they received the world’s first Carbon Foot Print Certificate for notebooks last year, won the world’s second Carbon Foot Print certificate for their eco-conscious U53JC Bamboo notebook, and today they have just announced the world’s first halogen-free monitor (which was awarded another accolade for being one of the greenest consumer electronic products on the market for 2010). ASUS’ Chairman has even said, “As a technology leader in the new digital era, it is our responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint and monitor the entire life-cycle of our products…It is just the beginning of Green ASUS. Consumers can anticipate even more innovative green products from us in the near future.” It looks like ASUS won’t be stopping the production of “green” products anytime soon, which is great news. It’s always nice to see manufacturers being innovative with their products while doing their best to save the environment at the same time. Here’s to hoping more manufacturers will follow suit.
