The European Commission's call is closed - we are curious about the result! In the meantime, we continue to pursue our mission to bring about a paradigm shift in the digital world. For example, by allowing software update to Android 10 for Fairphone 2.

We have submitted our position on the initiative “Sustainable consumption of goods” to the EC. You still have time to do so as well! In line with our manifesto, we support legislation for a circular economy. Read our statement here:

The European Commission has started the initiative "Sustainable consumption of goods - promoting repair and reuse” and is calling for public input. We welcome this, are already preparing our statement and encourage you to participate as well:

On average, around 50% of greenhouse gas emissions related to phones, notebooks or tablets occur during manufacturing. Therefore, focusing on sustainable production lines, longtime usage and repairability are part of our paramount objectives. Check out @Fairphone

For the last years, about 500 Mt of CO2 were emitted owing to the operation of telcom-networks and data centers. 90% of this accumulated due to day-to-day usage. See the importance of an ecofriendly network operation. Check out @neibo, @telecoop, @wetell, @phonecoop

German bitkom association showed that up to 3.2% of global greenhouse gas emissions are linked to digital technologies. Data computation, infrastructure and device manufacturing – all of these processes impact our climate. This is where makes a difference!
