Printer ink maker Dell has topped Newsweek's list of the greenest companies in the US. The magazine's annual Green Rankings grade the 500 largest public companies America on their environmental work, green policies and public standing as environmentally-aware companies.

Dell's claims the top spot after being number two last year. The firm said its supply chain, logistics, products, environmental commitment and collaboration with suppliers and customers had all helped secure the accolade.

"Dell's focus on environmental stewardship and sustainability helps us to be a more responsible partner to our customers," Michael Dell, chairman and chief executive of the firm, said. "The efficiencies we can all achieve through the use of greener products, solutions, services and programs should be an integral part of every corporate culture," he added.

Dell claims that since 2006 its recycling programs have ensured that over £484 million worth of its products have been recycled instead of ending up in landfill.
