Fairphone is the first company to sell fairtrade smartphones. As well as advising them on their online communications, communications content was created. Through their newsletter they update their community on their journey to enable fairer electronics.
Recently, Amnesty International put the mining sector’s use of child labor high on the international agenda. Our community is actively discussing the issue, and you can read for yourself Amnesty’s full report on cobalt mining. Responsible mining has been a central focus of Fairphone’s since we started, and we’re happy to announce a major milestone: We now have Fairtrade gold in our supply chain! Also, we’re working to spread the Fairphone story in more languages and the Fairphone 2 is an Innovation Award finalist at the South by Southwest Interactive festival in the USA.
