Microsoft’s Shareholders Demand Right-to-Repair

Microsoft shareholders have filed a resolution demanding the company consider making its products easier to repair. As You Sow, a non-profit that specializes in shareholder advocacy, delivered the shareholder resolution on Thursday.

The moves comes after Microsoft announced last year that it would be a carbon neutral company by 2030 but campaigners say it hasn’t done anything to to make repair easier.

The shareholder resolution is demanding that the Board “prepare a report, at reasonable cost and omitting proprietary information, on the environmental and social benefits of making Company devices more easily repairable by consumers and independent repair shops.”

Is this a simple PR move or could it be the beginning of shareholder driven change on Rightt to Repair?
