Nokia Joins Cell Phone-Environment Study

Updated:
HELSINKI, Finland (AP) _ Nokia said Monday it will take part in a European Commission pilot project to study the environmental impact of cellular phones, along with ways to minimize the negative effects.

The project will evaluate products across their life cycle from manufacture to disposal and aims to promote more environmentally friendly products in the European Union.

``When we create products, we take their entire life-span into account from design and manufacture through to recycling,'' said Veli Sundback, senior vice president of corporate relations and responsibility at the Finnish phone maker.

``We believe this is vital from the environmental and financial standpoint, and we are looking forward to sharing our experiences with the European Commission and other stakeholders,'' he said.

Nokia, based in Espoo, just outside the Finnish capital, has sales in 130 countries with 53,000 employees.
