Nokia today announced it will lead a group of manufacturers and carriers in an effort to reduce the environmental impact of mobile phones. The group will attempt to implement a wide range of changes including reducing harmful materials in phones, reducing the energy usage of phones, and increasing the number of old phones that are recycled.

Motorola, Panasonic, Vodafone, Orange and others are also founding members of this effort.
