Wipro tops in adopting green tech: Greenpeace [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]

(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "City-based information technology services major Wipro Ltd has been ranked by Greenpeace International as the best company in its global survey for following green technology.


The findings, released on Monday, covered 16 electronic companies across the world and ranked them on the basis of their progress in the field of energy & climate, greener products and sustainable operations.

While majority of the companies surveyed made progress in removing toxic chemicals from cell phones, computers and tablets they produce, most of them, however, are still heavily dependent on dirty energy sources for their manufacturing and supply chains.

At the same time they lag in managing e-waste and this is particularly rampant among companies in India. Many global companies have not even developed an e-waste management programme for India.

Wipro emerged topper due to its efforts to embrace renewable energy and advocacy for greener energy policies in India. "Wipro has set a new benchmark for sustainability, not only in India but across the globe. It will have a long-term impact in shaping the green energy debate in the electronics industry," said Abhishek Pratap, Greenpeace India senior campaigner.

Hewlett Packard (HP), which topped the list last year, dropped to second position, while telecom giant Nokia moved up to third position from fourth. Dell dropped to fifth position from third, while Apple slipped to sixth, from fifth last year.

"Given the massive energy crisis around the world caused by depleting and polluting fossil fuel, the next big environmental challenge for consumer electronics companies is to reduce their carbon pollution," said Greenpeace International IT analyst Casey Harrell.

"Companies should work with their suppliers to implement more efficient manufacturing processes and to power the supply chain with renewable energy, not fossil fuels, just as they have successfully done to reduce the toxic materials in electronics." Harrel added.

Raghavendra Prakash S, general manager and business head - Wipro Systems & Technology said it was a proud moment for the company to be recognised as a Green brand by Greenpeace. "Wipro is committed to the cause of offering environment-friendly products, processes and systems. We have made adequate investments in various programmes in the area of Green sustainability," he added.
