Publication Year: 2015

With no previous experience in the mobile phone industry, Bas van Abel, an industrial designer based in Amsterdam, started Fairphone as an NGO awareness campaign in March 2010. He hoped that by inviting the public to design collaboratively a prototype of a “fair” smartphone, the campaign would raise the Dutch public’s awareness of the link between mobile phones and minerals mined in the context of a bitter civil conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Van Abel did not intend to produce a functional, commercial smartphone; his goal was simply to raise public awareness. However, by January 2013, through a series of serendipitous events, interaction with industry actors, and encouragement from sections of the Dutch public, the awareness campaign had morphed into the social enterprise Fairphone.
