Mobile company launches 'green phone'



Mobile company launches 'green phone'
Mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has unveiled a new 'environmentally-friendly' mobile phone handset.

At the annual Nokia World conference in Amsterdam, the Finish company outlined its long-term plans to address environmental issues and emphasised its commitment to driving new initiatives in the mobile industry in areas such as energy efficiency.

The company also announced the launch of its new Nokia 3110 Evolve handset. The phone is made from more than 50 per cent renewable material and comes with Nokia's most energy efficient charger yet, using 94 per cent less energy than the current standards.

What's more, the device is presented in a small package made of 60 per cent recycled content.

Nokia have recently unveiled a series of environmental initiatives. It was the first mobile manufacturer to put alerts into its devices to encourage people to unplug their chargers and also introduced new compact packaging that reduced materials used by 54 per cent.

The manufacturer has also calculated that power that could be saved globally by all Nokia phone users unplugging their chargers when no longer needed is equivalent to enough energy to power 100,000 average-size European homes.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18384232-ADNFCR
