Apple ranked ninth by the Computer Report Card

Apple is ranked number nine overall—and number three among US companies—in the 3rd Annual Computer Report Card, compiled by a number of groups that measure “electronics equipment and the performance of companies that produce computers.” Among the report’s main focus is the cleanliness of a company’s production line, protecting workers’ health, and producing “environmentally superior” products. The report points out many discrepancies between the practices of companies overseas, where environmental standards are often more strict, compared to the U.S. Apple is highlighted as an example, where the company in Germany offers a free take-back program to recycle computers, but offers no such program the U.S.
