A Quote by Ida Auken

PageQuote
World Economic Forum“And if you lease, why shouldn’t you lease your refrigerator, or your washing machine, or our dishwasher. Why do you want to own it? I mean it’s not like the plastic and the metal is like, “You! I own it.” A broken dishwasher. I mean wow. No, why don’t you want to go into a business model where the company owns it? You know what happens when the company owns it? Actually, they can bring down the prices because they don’t have to buy new metal and new plastic.”
