While today’s TVs are being offered with ever-bigger screens, this doesn’t have to mean a bigger cost to the environment. With the 55PFL6007, Philips has created a set with increased functionality over its previous models while maintaining its standing as a brand with environmentally efficient products. Not only does the 55PFL6007 outperform its rivals when it comes to energy efficiency but it also boasts the efficient use of precious metals in its printed circuit boards. As such, a Philips TV set wins the EISA Green Award for the third year in succession.
The smart phone market is developing rapidly as models come packed with ever-increasing functionality. Unfortunately, the trend towards the use of bigger screens and embedded batteries can make recycling harder. The Sony Xperia P outperforms the competition in terms of energy performance while making efficient use of materials of environmental concern, such as precious metals and has a low copper content. With the Xperia P, Sony successfully follows the performance of last year’s winner, its Xperia Mini.
