The World is saved! Asus announced today that the Asus N51V notebook computer is the world's first notebook to receive both Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and carbon footprint (PAS 2050:2008) certificates.

ASUS is the first Taiwanese IT manufacturer to participate in EPEAT and to have its products registered at the Gold level. It is also the first to participate in EU Flower and have products its awarded the EU Flower.
Going Green sounds complicated:
"ASUS' GHG Reduction Policy states that it supports the strategy to mitigate climate change and embrace the "no-regret policy" by reducing ASUS-owned operation carbon emissions and product carbon footprints through innovations.
Through its close adherence to ISO 14025 Environmental Labels and Declarations -- Type III Environmental Declarations, ASUS' N51V notebook is now the first notebook computer to receive the EPD certificate. Based on EPD, ASUS follows BSI PAS 2050:2008 to implement Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) which includes five phases—materials, manufacturing, using, transportation, and disposal—and subsequently discloses completely the direct and indirect GHG emission data during each phase. The process and data are then verified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
Through this rigorous process, the ASUS N51V received PAS 2050:2008 certification."
