    Do you mean if they are environmentally friendly, contact the Environment Agency if so, they will be more than happy to help. Telephone: 08708 506 506* (Mon-Fri, 8am - 6pm)

    Aah, I see, I was thinking of the business practices and their environmental consideration, their suppliers, their energy source, their manifesto - take a look at Google and you will find that they are a strong company financially, no small part of this is due to their green practises.

    That's a good point. It's not something I am an expert on so I should contact the experts and see what they have to say about a a specific company or at least find out what I should be asking...

    If your looking for a supplier of machines with green credentials then have a look at VeryPC.

    I consider green (and other ethical) credentials of the manufacturers when buying equipment, but must confess it isn't something I look at when selecting a supplier. Probably should though, it's the sort of tree-hugging thing I'd do.
