We know that Apple claims to be a company particularly committed to the environment, at least that’s how they let us know whenever they get the chance, which has become especially important since Tim Cook took over as as CEO of Lake ompañía de Cupertino.
However, The question now hangs over Apple’s e-waste policies and the UK believes it is not keeping its promises. Let’s be honest, we don’t know if Apple is really taking the necessary action or not, but the reality is that for now the iPhone charger and headphones have been taken away from us.
In The Guardian They have conducted research in which they question the involvement of companies such as Apple and Amazon with the environment:
Global giants like Amazon and Apple should take more responsibility in helping select, recycle and repair their products to reduce the 155,000 tonnes of electronic waste they generate in the UK each year.
Much of this material ends up in landfills and is incinerated or worse, ends up in the seas. In fact, smartphones, tablets and other electronic products such as computers are worth around $ 62.5 billion despite being turned into garbage because they contain precious metals such as gold, silver. or titanium.
In short, according to The Guardian maybe big companies spend more on advertising their environmental acts than on their actually enforced acts. However, Apple claims to be a zero emission company, but we don’t know if that includes hardware makers who later come together to assemble their products, or only refers to the CO2 produced by their offices or servers, which would be a lie quite curious. Either way, we must all apply ourselves to the environment, and Apple more.
