We regularly investigate products (printers, tights…) to disclose good and worst practices and to unveal possible cases of planned obsolescence.

Complaints

At the end of 2017, we filed the first complaints for planned obsolescence in France, against Epson and Apple.

In order to develop expertise on durability expertise, we work with the NGO Equiterre in Canada, our experts’ Committee and our Club of businesses for durability.

Committing companies

The Club of businesses for durability is a voluntary network of companies which work towards the extension of product lifespan, making concrete solutions emerge to progress. Planned obsolescence is not inevitable!
