Microsoft on Vista Landfill Effect: ‘Environmental Issues Important to Us All’
Microsoft has responded to UK Green Party claims that Microsoft’s latest operating system, Vista, could lead to a mass upgrade of PCs that will result in old machines being dumped in landfill sites, ZDNet UK reports.
In a statement sent to ZDNet UK, Microsoft director of government affairs, Matt Lambert, said the company was doing its best to improve its environmental standing. “Environmental issues are important to us all and we believe we are making important steps towards reducing the environmental footprint of our products and the hardware on which they run,” Lambert said.
Lambert added that Microsoft is happy to meet with the UK’s Green Party to discuss its environmental record.
