The article focuses on a Greenpeace report, which claims that Philips is one of the consumer-electronics industry's worst e-waste offenders. Greenpeace claimed that while most companies accept responsibility for recycling their own products and are improving their recycling programs for consumers, several TV companies are dragging their feet on recycling with the majority offering no recycling for old TVs in many countries.
