Fairphone is a movement for fairer electronics. By creating a phone, the social enterprise is opening up the supply chain, building new relationships between people and their products and starting conversations about what is truly fair. Fairphone is making a positive impact in four key areas (long-lasting design, fair materials, good working conditions, and reuse and recycling) while expanding the market for products that put ethical values first.

Fairphone is working to achieve their ambition to create a fairer supply chain step by step, focusing on activities and interventions within four core action areas:

Fair Materials
Fairphone wants to source materials that support local economies, not armed militias. They’re starting with conflict-free minerals from the DR Congo.

Long-lasting Design
Fairphone is focusing on longevity and repairability to extend the phone’s usable life and give buyers more control over their products.

Good Working Conditions
Factory workers deserve safe conditions, fair wages and worker representation. Fairphone is working closely with manufacturers that want to invest in employee wellbeing.

Reuse and Recycle
Fairphone is addressing the full lifespan of mobile phones, including use, reuse and safe recycling.
