Fairphone is a social enterprise company which aims to develop smartphones that are designed and produced with minimal harm to people and the planet. The company is based in Amsterdam, Netherlands and is supported by the Waag Society, a foundation which aims to foster experimentation with new technologies, art and culture. The main motivation for founding Fairphone was to develop a mobile device that does not contain conflict minerals (which in smartphones are typically gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten) and has fair labour conditions for the workforce along the supply chain producing it. The second version of the company's handset is one of the first modular smartphones available for purchase, with the product being designed to be easily repaired and upgraded.
