Okay, maybe there are no ethical smartphones. But some must be better than others, right?
Ethical Consumer, a UK organisation “researching and recording the social and environmental records of companies” since 1989, is a leader in evaluating products for their impact on human rights, animal rights, the environment, and other factors that might fall under the heading “ethics”. Its report on smartphones isn’t very positive, in general. It awards points from a possible score of 20, and nobody scores more than 10.5.
