12 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World 12 Review of Mobile Handset Eco-ratings

13 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Report Overview 13 Eco-Ratings have been developed as a method to communicate the sustainability performance of handsets to consumers Ratings are based on a number of sustainability categories encompassing OEM Supply Chain Handset Report provides an analysis of the current state and potential for further work Report reviewed by major global carriers and OEMs

14 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Report Overview Baseline Analysis of Current Carrier Programs (Orange, Sprint, UL, Vodafone, Telefonica, AT&T, Bell Canada) Baseline Analysis of OEM disclosures (Apple, Samsung, Nokia, LG, Sony Mobile ) 14

15 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Report Overview Report provides baseline performance and best practices for the potential development of a single common eco-rating scheme e.g. Energy Efficiency component Baseline : Compatibility with a universal charger scheme Best practice: Measure the energy consumption of the use phase of the handset To be published: 2 nd Green Standards Week – September 2012, Paris, France 15

16 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World 16 Guiding Principles for Green ICT Procurement

17 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Report Overview Provides direction to ICT companies to promote effective procurement practices with suppliers and customers, to jointly raise the awareness of environmental issues among their business transactions Systematic guidance to address a sustainable step- by-step procurement process is included, detailing green considerations to be used among purchasing practices of procured products and services. 17
