About

The electronics industry generates a huge amount of negative externalities, from the mines to the products end-of-life. Many studies showed that most of it stems from the product birth and death. Thus, the first priority is to reduce the number of devices made and sold. However, this is not viable for companies that relies solely on the sale of these devices. Hence the need for another business model : Hardware as as service (HaaS). This model has proven its worth with strong companies like Xerox or Michelin. In this model, the customer pay monthly for access to the device and suitable services. The overall user experience is usually muh improved. On the other side, the company remains the owner of the fleet of devices and has strong interest in providing long lasting and repairable hardware. Commown is a French "société coopérative d’intérêt collectif (SCIC)" that support fair and sustainable electronics by providing HaaS offers with such electronics.
