The report cites Nintendo's lack of e-waste and recycling initiatives, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and a host of other ominous environmental buzzwords. On the plus side, Nintendo did score a 'partially good' in 'chemicals management,' so at leat the Wii won't cause any mutated flipper babies.

As for the other gaming manufacturers, Microsoft ranked second last with 1.9, while Sony landed in sixth place with a respectable score of 5.1.
