Newsweek Green List Includes Game Companies

October 20, 2009 -

A handful of game companies and retailers are listed within Newsweek’s Green Rankings list, which rates the Top 500 environmental companies in America.

While the list, with 500 entries, is hardly exclusive, each entrant was awarded an overall hard numeric score. The company that fared the best overall? Hewlett-Packard with a Green Score of 100, followed by Dell in second with a 98.87.

In the gaming (and related) business sector, Microsoft came in at #31 with a score of 83.79, followed by retailers Wal-Mart (#59) with a score of 80.38 and Best Buy (#61) with a score of 80.33. GameStop clocked in at #228, with a score of 71.37, with Electronic Arts (#381) and Activision Blizzard (#416) following. EA and Activision Blizzard had scores of 65.58 and 63.80 respectively.

Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy! Stop supporting big media and furthering the criminalization of consumers!! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

As always, Nintendo is dead last.

Andrew EisenNo argument there.07/06/2015 - 7:46pm
Matthew Wilsonwell it would benefit Reddit to fix that asap. when of of the work on the site is done for free, there is no reason not to give them 1 of the few things they are asking for (better communications).07/06/2015 - 7:45pm
Andrew EisenRight and THAT'S what she appears to be apologizing for.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the thing is it wasnt the firing in of it self that people got upset about, its the lack of communication. this would not be a issue if admins would just communicate more with mods.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Andrew EisenI don't get the sense she's apologizing for firing one of their employees. For all we know, they could have a very good reason for letting her go. But yeah, hopefully Reddit's subsequent actions speak louder than Pao's words.07/06/2015 - 7:34pm
Goth_SkunkIf Pao is directly responsible for the termination of Reddit's AMA co-ordinator, then good for her for owning up to her mistake. If she wasn't, smart business sense to take the fall. It will all be in vain though if she can't earn back the trust she lost.07/06/2015 - 7:23pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://money.cnn.com/2015/07/06/technology/reddit-back-online-ellen-pao/index.html she kinda had no choice given what happened Friday.07/06/2015 - 6:48pm

Andrew EisenWell, what if Konami released MGS 5 with a mandatory $60 plastic peripheral? Do you think that would help?07/05/2015 - 8:09pm
MattsworknameI dont think so, I think that between the lose of iga, kojima, and so forth, i think MGS 5 will be less succesfull then they think, and tha will spell there end.07/05/2015 - 7:08pm
