CSR maturity

C-
Motorola Mobility is the group's telephony subsidiary. It is its CSR policy that we have chosen to analyse.
Motorola claims great transparency in terms of its efforts to become a company which is as eco-responsible as possible. For instance, the company publishes a CSR report which intends to be exhaustive as a result of being 200 pages long. Being as exhaustive as this is a little too much. Besides, this report has not been audited by a third party or validated by the GRI, although it states that it adheres to its directives.
In addition, the company has been nominated in the top 100 of the most eco-responsible companies by the "Corporate Responsibility Magazine" and has been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 7 years. A proof of consistency that can also be found in its 53rd place in Newsweek's 2011 "Green Rankings" of the 500 most environmentally responsible companies.

In terms of the actual products, Motorola is a group which has made a lot of effort and makes claims about this for its telephones, but simply gives too little information about its tablets. The efforts are welcomed by Greenpeace in its October 2010 ranking, where Motorola features in 6th place, in particular for the elimination of chemicals such as PVC and brominated flame retardants only from mobiles. On the other hand, the group no longer appears in the November 2011 edition, without any real explanation...  
As far as production is concerned, when we rely on the published indicators, the results are less clear-cut. Whereas 2009 was a year of reduction of consumptions and emissions, 2010 was less of a success. CO2 emissions, which are moreover validated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), are up for production and transport. However, globally the company's carbon footprint has been reduced by 45% since 2005. This does not prevent Climate Counts from giving Motorola 74 points out of 100 for its actions and undertakings to protect the climate.

With regard to the social aspect, apart from standard indicators and a commitment which is not very innovative in this area, we should welcome Motorola's "Solutions for Hope" project which aims to procure tantalum from the Democratic Republic of Congo, whilst making sure that it is not linked to any conflicts on the spot. In association with a capacitor supplier, Motorola has created a closed supply chain where all elements are identified in advance.
