Sony Ericsson launches green mobile phones

Sony Ericsson launches green mobile phones
Two new mobile phones have been unveiled that claim to have a carbon footprint that is 15 percent lower than typical handsets.

Sony Ericsson's C901 GreenHeart and Naite mobile phones are made from recycled materials and come with electronic manuals that help to reduce paper usage by over 90 percent.

As part of the mobile company's new policy of sustainability, the new products ship with low-power chargers that further help to reduce the levels of carbon dioxide emitted as a result of the manufacture and usage of the phones.

People purchasing the C901 Greenheart as part of a low-carbon lifestyle will also receive the WalkMate application, which lets users measure how many steps they take and compare the distance with the equivalent car journey.

Dick Komiyama, president of the device manufacturer, announced the "innovative" new phones as the "next step" in the company's sustainability strategy.

"Sony Ericsson has worked continuously to become an industry leader in the area of removing harmful substances from the core of its phones and in creating industry leading energy efficiency chargers," he said.

The firm's sustainability policy includes a commitment to reduce CO2 emissions across its entire organisation by 20 percent in absolute terms by 2015.

It also intends to reduce the full life-cycle CO2 emissions of all its products by 15 percent over the same period.
