Our selection of Sustainable Choice products, to sustain them for a long time
What is “Sustainable Choice”?
Ecology is currently in the center of attention of citizens, and therefore consumers. It is now accepted that our purchases and our consumption patterns have a significant impact on the planet and must make more sense.
Another parameter that has been factored in over the months in our buying choices, inflation. The price increases have indeed made us reflect on the useful life of our equipment: do I really have to buy a new vacuum cleaner or can I repair it and thereby save money, in this time of diminishing purchasing power? ?
Whether out of ecological awareness or to maintain purchasing power, remember that consumers are increasingly looking for products that are reliable and repairable. That’s good, the Fnac-Darty group is at the forefront in this regard, in particular thanks to the expertise acquired by our Darty brand sister, so after-sales service is quite simple first in France. Based on a gigantic database enriched over years, our brands offer products that stand out for obtaining the best sustainability scores in their categories.
An durability score is obtained by crossing failure rate and parts availability, all weighted by volume sold, for the most relevant result. Therefore, Sustainable Choice products are differentiated by a lower failure rate for comparable products in the same category, which is a good indicator of their reliability over time, and by longer availability of spare partsallows repairs over a longer period of time.
