Ranking of sustainability of smartphone manufacturers in the UK 2017

This statistic illustrates the Ranking of sustainability/environmental friendliness of smartphone manufacturers in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2017. The highest ranked manufacturer in this field was Apple with a share of 21 percent. Samsung came in second with a share of 14 percent. However, most of the respondents were not able to tell. A total of 56 percent of respondents did not know which manufacturer produced the most environmentally friendly smartphone.
With low recycling rates and the average cell phone life being around 18 months, billions of phones were being thrown away around the world. Thus, making the e-waste generated by thrown away electronic goods a growing and serious problem. The best way to solve this would be making cell phones in general more sustainable or environmentally friendly.
