Nokia N8 & C7 Phones Get Green; Even the User Manual is Eco-friendly!

November 25, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With a recent innovative offer, users can opt for greener devices while purchasing the new Nokia N8 or the Nokia C7 phones. Well, being eco-friendly is a trend in gadget market now; let’s see the Nokia version now.

To be down to earth, Nokia starts it from the user’s manual. Shrinking it to a single paper manual for these devices, Nokia made a 95 per cent saving in paper, contributing to the conservation of rapidly depleting greenery on the earth.

Both these devices feature energy-saving mode, reducing the energy consumption much lower than similar devices. The AMOLED screen and ambient light sensor add to these energy saving measures on Nokia N8 and Nokia C7 models.

Use of bioplastics – degradable plastic derived from biomass – has made N8 more eco-friendly. Similarly C7 is the first in the industry to make use of bio paints. Moreover, they are PVC free and have no BFR (Brominated Flame Retardants) and RFR content.

Nokia has done more in this respect. Minimal packaging with completely recyclable materials is noteworthy as a sustainable measure. The high efficiency energy charger and green games like Climate Mission adds to the green profile of these Nokia devices.

To be transparent about the environmental impact of their devices, Nokia has given a link to the eco-profile of each model.

The green initiative is a joint venture between Nokia and Telefónica, named ‘Green Customer Experience’. Both are leaders in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which means we can expect greener initiatives from Nokia in the future also, a move indeed essential for a greener future.
