CNN thinks these guys were worth a mention for going above and beyond last year:

1. Honda (www.honda.com)
2. Continental Airlines (www.continental.com)
3. Suncor (www.suncor.com)
4. Tesco (www.tesco.com)
5. Alcan (www.alcan.com)
6. PG&E (www.pge.com)
7. SC Johnson (www.scjohnson.com)
8. Goldman Sachs (www2.goldmansachs.com)
9. Swiss Re (www.swissre.com)
10. Hewlett-Packard (www.hp.com)

Who do you think should be recognized for their sustainability efforts this year, and why?

Bah!

How can a green company list include any airline?

I am rather skeptical of any electronics company too. Most of these hide their environmental impact by subcontracting manufacturing to other companies (particularly offshore): HP does not generate the impact it is the Chinese. Blame the Chinese for all the environmental mess.

I'm not familiar with all of these companies, but I question the IQ of the individual who put this list together. I agree with Charles, an airline? an electronics company? household products companies who put formaldehydes and phosphates into their products? No, these are not very green companies, but merely companies who may have contributed to some environmental research or who finally 'got it' and started using recycled plastic for their product containers. I don't think I would go as far as to blame the Chinese completely for the environmental mess, they are simply capitalizing on what we started. They feed the greed.
