The British Parliament’s environmental audit committee published a long report today, accusing technology companies such as apple that they are promoting e-waste by making their products difficult to repair and charging expensive maintenance fees. Apple and other companies use glue and welding to assemble parts and components in laptops, which makes maintenance very difficult, and they charge high fees to repair products, the committee said in its report. This trend runs counter to the long history of British Engineering and needs to stop. In a statement to the guardian, apple said it was surprised and disappointed by the report of the UK environmental audit committee, claiming to be an industry leader in environmental protection. “We are surprised and disappointed by the environmental audit committee’s report, which does not reflect any of Apple’s efforts to conserve resources and protect the planet,” Apple said. Customers have more choices than ever to exchange, recycle and obtain safe and high-quality maintenance services. Recycled materials are used in key parts of Apple’s latest Apple watch and iPad iPhone products. We will continue to work with Congress and the government to fulfill Apple’s industry-leading commitment and strive to leave a clean economy and a healthy planet for the next generation. ” In a letter to the Committee in September, apple elaborated on many of its environmental efforts, including increasing the use of recycled materials in its products and operating its business with 100% renewable energy. The Commission said the current business model for electronic products relies on sustainable consumption, disposable culture and short-lived products, and called on technology companies to take the lead in creating sustainable and environmentally friendly business models that do not depend on natural development.
