Greenpeace returns to use Apple's role in the market to criticize sustainability in other technology companies

Citing Apple's work (which has already been the subject of successive criticisms of sustainable development), Greenpeace again began to splinter at technology companies this week, demanding a greater commitment to the construction of products that offer less aggression to the environment. A statement was issued against a giant in the PC market at Dell, suggesting that it has yet to meet its goals to remove toxins from the computers it produces.

Some of the charges made by the entity are to remove materials such as PVC and bromide-based flame retardants (BFRs), in addition to adopting other components less harmful to nature than these. Apple is setting an example for other companies, as it basically focuses on these issues discussed by Greenpeace, given that all requirements are currently met by Macs, iPods, iPhones, iPads and almost all of Ma's accessories.

Last year, the activist group also criticized HP, another giant in the computer market, for the same problems. It is strange to note that he does not have a very impartial argument when dealing with sustainability with technology companies, because, although Apple is well regarded in criticism against its competitors about the use of toxic materials, it is one of the worst companies in the ranking of the same entity .
