CEA Salutes ‘Green’ Members Named By Newsweek

Arlington, Va. – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) today
applauded its member companies recognized by Newsweek as among the nation’s
greenest corporations.

Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Intel and IBM (ranked 1, 2, 3 and 5,
respectively) took four of the top five spots on the list, which ranked
America’s 500 largest corporations according to environmental impact, green
policies and reputation. Twelve of the top 25 companies are technology

“We are extremely pleased to congratulate all of the consumer
electronics companies that were recognized by Newsweek for their support for
environmental sustainability,” said Gary Shapiro, CEA’s president/CEO. “This
recognition shines a well-deserved light on the accomplishments of so many in
our industry that have implemented environmental strategies that contribute to
the good of the industry, as well as the health of people and the planet.”

Newsweek collaborated with three research partners to compile the
rankings: KLD Research & Analytics, which tracks environmental, social and
governance data on companies worldwide and served as lead partner; Trucost,
which specializes in quantitative environmental performance measurement; and, the world’s largest online directory of social
responsibility, sustainability and environmental reporting.

According to Newsweek, “The goal was to assess each company’s
actual resource use and emissions and its policies and strategies, along with
its reputation among its peers.” A complete list of the rankings, released
Sept. 21, is available at

In October 2008, CEA published its first industry-wide
environmental sustainability report. Environmental Sustainability and
Innovation in the Consumer Electronics Industry benchmarks the industry’s
progress toward eco-stewardship, from design and energy efficiency to green
manufacturing and clean delivery systems. The report highlights the successful
efforts of more than 60 technology companies, including Cisco, Dell, HP, Intel,
Lenovo and Nokia, to advance environmental accountability. The complete report
