Apple ‘dodges MP’s questions’ about its true sustainability credentials

The tech giant cancelled its appearance at the EAC’s Electronic Waste and the Circular Economy inquiry on short notice and has not answered letters written since

Apple continues to dodge MPs’ questions surrounding its electronic products' sustainability and repairability credentials.

That's according to the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), which says it invited the multinational technology giant to participate in its Electronic Waste and the Circular Economy inquiry on 16th July - after promising to attend, Apple cancelled at short notice.

This was followed by EAC Chainman Philip Dunne writing to Apple CEO Tim Cook on 4th August about the social and environmental footprint of the electronics industry - he says he has still not received a "substantive reply".
