Apple named 'least green' tech company

Postby wrveres » Fri Apr 22, 2011 7:14 am

Apple has come bottom of the most comprehensive green league table of technology companies because of its heavy reliance on "dirty data" centres. The list, which is compiled by Greenpeace and released in San Francisco on Thursday, shows that the company relies heavily on highly polluting coal power at the sites that house its banks of servers. Greenpeace's report, How Dirty is Your Data? reveals that the company's investment in a new North Carolina facility will triple its electricity consumption, equivalent to the electricity demand of 80,000 average US homes. The facility's power will be supplied by Duke Energy, with a mix of 62% coal and 32% nuclear. Gary Cook, Greenpeace's IT policy analyst and lead author of the report, said: "Consumers want to know that when they upload a video or change their Facebook status that they are not contributing to global warming or future Fukushimas." link

Maybe it will make the wannabe liberal hipsters think twice before they shell out for an overpriced MacBook.
