Nintendo Hits Rock Bottom In Greenpeace Rankings

Veteran video game company needs to clean up its act

Nintendo has scored just 1.4 out of a possible 10 for its chemical, e-waste and energy policies in Greenpeace’s annual Guide to Greener Electronics, the lowest score of the eighteen companies tested.

Despite last year pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and e-waste, Nintendo has failed to score a single point in these categories.

It’s not all bad news however, and Greenpeace did award points for having PVC-free internal wiring in its consoles, banning phthalates, having a low-power AC adapter for the DSi, disclosing CO2 emissions and monitoring the use of other harmful chemicals.

Maybe Endless Ocean is more than just a game but in fact a training program for when the ice caps melt and the planet is flooded.
