Hi everyone

Electronic waste is a big problem and one of the causes is planned obsolescence. France has therefore introduced a Repairability Index in a bid to help buyers make better choices, and hopefully encourage companies to manufacture more repairable devices.

To me, this seems like a big step in the right direction, but:

Is it OK that companies will be self reporting their scores?

Should there also be legislation requiring minimum standards for repairability?

I think this is a great way forward, but takes years to implement it into product designs...anyway has to be started one day.

It sounds to be great idea without going into the details. The re-use and reduce are highly placed in waste management ladder, so all reuse options are potentially positive especially is doesn’t not increase logistics too much, but there is a hope to improve those as well. Repairing also means reduce the need for new goods.. so
