Change is in your hands
We are Fairphone. An Amsterdam-based electronics company. We’re disrupting the industry by changing how our devices are built and produced. It’s only fair.
How change works
Share what we know
Inside every phone is a complex supply chain. We uncover industry practices and show how your phone is made, and it’s impact on the environment. You can tell others too.
Do what we say
Action requires going straight to the source. Where we can, we make our devices with materials that are recycled, or responsibly sourced and conflict-free. Designing best practices that you can support.
Prove it can be done
The proof is in the people. For every fairphone product sold, we’ve proven that electronics can be made more sustainably. And we’re actively challenging industry practices. Together, making an impact.
We began as an awareness campaign. Sharing the use of conflict minerals and mining practices in the electronics industry. And, well, the people responded. In 2013, we grew the movement into a business. Idealism drove us. Change keeps us going.
Whatever you buy, it should be yours to own. What does that mean? Well, you should know what’s on the inside. All of the parts and how it’s made in order to take care of it. And take pride in it.
Quality and care go hand in hand. Thats how we see it. Designed to be long-lasting, the quality we put into our devices shows the care for society and our natural world.
What’s inside your
Take a look inside
The Fairphone 5 is our most sustainable phone yet. Made with more fair and recycled materials. Here’s a glimpse at what’s inside.
Our fairest battery
With a capacity of 4200 mAh it will last all day. You can easily swap it out yourself in seconds and it comes with more fair materials inside and integrated in the supply chain than ever.
The Fairphone 5’s OLED screen module is made with durable Corning Gorilla Glass and it’s easily replaceable. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes.
Just in case this small but vital little connector ever decides to take a break or call it quits, we’ve made it a replaceable spare part for the Fairphone 5.
The Fairphone 5 contains 100% recycled rare earth elements and 90% recycled plastics for the speaker cover, as well as Fairtrade gold integrated in the supply chain.
All the parts in your device come together to work for you because people made it that way. People with interests, hobbies, and full lives. And they deserve a quality of life that’s enough for them and their families. Without them, there would be no smartphone.
Make an impact
Change takes time. But together, we’re making progress.
With every phone we make, we’re improving sourcing, the environment and recyclability, and working conditions. Buying a Fairphone device means disrupting the electronics industry for the better.

The biggest commitment we can all make is to hold onto our phones for longer. If we did that, we’d reduce carbon emissions created through new phone production, transport, waste, and usage. That’s why our devices are built to be long-lasting. Beyond that, as a company, we realize we can do more. And for us, that means going to net zero.See our climate actions
