Although Apple claims that their products are more environmentally friendly than the manufacturer just bring a real stick. The giant consumer technology now ranks 118th among U.S. companies less polluting, after a fall of 68 places from last year.

Apple drops 68 spots on the list of greenest U.S. companies

Apparently, Apple did not return a found emission of greenhouse gases in its facilities in the U.S. through the Carbon Disclosure Project in 2011 and 2012, which is why the company has dropped so many posts.

Apple's main competitors in the U.S. have achieved much better positions. Thus we find Microsoft in 12th, Google in position 22 and well below to find Amazon now ranked 347. This annual survey ranks U.S. companies as its environmental footprint, environmental management and transparency that show. Apple seems to reject the transparency factor, which is nothing new policies knowing that usually follows the Cupertino company.

Apple defends himself by saying that "only three percent of the carbon footprint of the company" comes from its facilities. In contrast, 97% comes from their products. Apple provides customers with details about the environmental impact of the products they buy: whether we talk about Mac, iPhone, iPod or any other product.

Can Apple do more to show that he is aware of environmental issues? Do environmental awareness a factor when we think of buying consumer electronics?

At the end of the day, many of the gadgets we use in our day to day (if not most) are manufactured in countries where the issue of the environment is not given importance only.
