Circular Wonderings is an exploration of the role of digital, software and technology in the Circular Economy. Exploration is the key word here. I write regularly, reflecting on my current thoughts and research. Expect typos, incomplete thoughts, varied rambling topics and (hopefully) a journey towards clearer understanding and insight. Subscribe here to join my journey.

France's repairability index

"France [requires] makers of certain electronic devices, including smartphones and laptops, to tell consumers how repairable their products are." [1]

"If repair scores start influencing consumer behavior across France as these findings suggest they will, manufacturers are likely to feel pressure to make devices easier to fix."

Policies like this have the potential to supercharge the transition to a circular economy.

That, in turn, opens more exciting opportunities.
