How is the Fairphone 5 fair?

Fair for the planet

The environmental impact of a smartphone mainly occurs during production, so Fairphone have reduced their carbon footprint with a climate-conscious effort. So, the longer you keep it, the more emissions you save.

The Fairphone 5 contains 14 focus materials to ensure they are always sourcing sustainably and fairly. Unique to Fairphone is Fairtrade Gold, a first in the mobile phone industry. Other materials include 100% recycled plastic, ASI-certified aluminium, and IRMA Iron. Together, 70% of the Fairphone 5 is made with fair materials, making it a truly sustainable option in the unethical smartphone market.

Fair for people

Together with their suppliers, Fairphone is making the mobile industry a far fairer place for workers from the beginning and end of the production process. The steps Fairphone have taken for workers include:
  • Living wage bonus
  • Representation is guaranteed for all workers by their partner Arima providing opportunities and platforms to raise concerns, suggest changes and more.
  • SA8000 certification which is amongst the highest standards of safety and fair conditions.
  • No child labour and provide assistance to small-scale mining communities to end child labour.
Every new Fairphone user helps to make the smartphone industry a better place.

Future-proof performance

The Fairphone 5 comes with a unique Octa-chipset with at least 8 years of software support, allowing for the fastest and most powerful Android experience. The industry-leading commitment to longevity provides a cohesive and customisable experience that's built to last.

5-year warranty as standard

To support the vision of longevity turning into reality, Fairphone have issued a 5-year warranty for all Fairphone 5 users. Once purchased, your warranty is automatically started, so users can start enjoying the longest-lasting, manufacturer-protected smartphone on the planet.

Modular saves money

The Fairphone 5 has a 10-part modular design which means all the different elements that make up the device can be individually and easily replaced. A broken screen or an ageing battery can be swapped out using just a screwdriver at home with affordable parts from Fairphone.

The world-leading repairability Fairphone offers allows users to stop the cycle of purchasing a new mobile every 2.5 years (average time kept UK). This culture of waste damages our planet as over 36 thousand tonnes of E-waste enters UK landfill each year.

To help end this issue, Fairphone recycles an old phone for every new Fairphone user, operating as E-waste neutral. keep your Fairphone for as long as possible and save money, the planet and end E-waste.
