The government must take action against “throwaway culture”
The UK Parliament’s Environment Committee appoints one report that is not very benevolent for technology companies. So goes the body in the short version of the report suggests that Apple glued and soldered components in the notebooks, which made repairs difficult. In addition, the group demanded very high fees for the repair of its devices. The committee does not skimp on pathos: it is a trend that goes against the long history of engineering in Great Britain – and that must be stopped. Corporations like Amazon and Apple are responsible for a “tsunami of electronic waste”. The government is urged to take action against short-lived products and a “throwaway culture”.
Apple is disappointed
Apple ruled on the allegations: The company brought up against The Guardian expressed disappointment with the committee’s report. The committee does not reflect the Group’s efforts to conserve resources and protect the planet. The latest models of Apple Watch, iPhone, and iPad use recycled materials for all key components. Apple wants to continue working with the government and parliament to leave a healthy planet.
Apple doesn’t take environmental commitments seriously
However, Cupertino has not shown itself to be particularly willing to cooperate in the past: Bloomberg According to the committee, Apple had already asked months ago to answer the committee’s questions – but the company did not respond. The group does not take its environmental obligations seriously enough, said the chairman of the committee, Philip Dunne.
