Fairphone s mission is to change the relationship between people and their products, and their vision is an economy based on fairer principles.

Beyond monetary benefits, the ultimate goal is to ensure that employees work in safe conditions that comply with environmental regulations Describe short and long term environmental impact: Short and long term: part of improving the electronics supply chain is considering the full lifecycle. It s not only about producing new phones; it s also about finding better ways to deal with electronics that have reached the end of their lifespan. The fairphones are just starting their lives, so the first recycling efforts will focus on other phones already in circulation. For every Fairphone sold, 3 is reserved for setting up projects in countries where safe e-waste recycling is not yet facilitated Describe short and long term social impact: Short and long term: from the mines to the factories, every worker involved in creating this smartphone has to earn a fair wage.

4 3.5. What are the best aspects of this Good practice? - Fair and conflict-free resources - Fair wages - E-waste solutions - Transparent pricing 3.6. What should be altered / improved?
