“Tsunami of electronic waste” – criticism of Cupertino’s “short-lived products” and “throwaway culture”

Apple likes to present itself as a company that focuses on sustainability and takes ecological responsibility. The group justifies the omission of the power supply for newly purchased iPhones with the environmental goals it has set itself – after all, the company wants to achieve climate-neutral production of its devices by 2030. However, Apple’s efforts are not entirely credible to some environmentalists: A new report by a British committee raises serious allegations against Cupertino and other technology giants – and calls for political interventions, among other things. The European Parliament recently voted in favor of a right to repair – the UK could soon follow suit.
