Fairphone

Attractive, functional, but above all fair

The founders of the Fairphone wondered whether it was possible to produce a ‘fair’ smartphone. So, without material from conflict zones, with fair treatment of all workers and full transparency about the origin of materials. With help from KPN, this remarkable initiative was able to expand into a full-fledged business. In 2014, we were the first provider to offer the Fairphone: an attractive but at the same time functional smartphone. The Fairphone has a modular design, making it easy to replace broken components.
