Dutch social enterprise Fairphone have announced the launch of their latest smartphone: the Fairphone 3. The new, improved modular phone builds on the company’s previous achievements to deliver a sleek and durable device that closes the gap between performance and sustainability.
The phone is made with responsibly sourced and conflict-free tin and tungsten, recycled copper and plastics, and sources Fairtrade gold.
Fairphone was the first electronics manufacturer to integrate Fairtrade gold into its supply chain. Fairtrade gold drives environmental benefits for miners and their communities and delivers a Fair Price and Premium for re-investment into mine and community projects.
Fairphone is also in the process of setting up an initiative for better sourcing of cobalt, the key mineral for the energy transition.
