Greenpeace ranks Google best for environmental protection.

Greenpeace ranks technology companies low on their environmental policies and practices. On a scale of 1 to 100, all Silicon Valley and tech companies are ranked below 50 except for Google, which is rated 53 out of 100.

The rankings are based on current and future investment in green solutions, emissions and energy consumption, and environmental political advocacy.

Google rose to the top of the list this year because it published information about its energy footprint and invested nearly a billion dollars in clean energy solutions.

Facebook and Apple are ranked so low they didn't even make the list. Gary Cook, a co-author of the report, says "he’s seen no effort from Apple to lead the rest of the market."
