Press Review – Look Who’s Talking


Over the past year and a half we’ve been overwhelmed and honored to have quite a few inquisitive journalists knock on our door and start asking questions.

We can’t possibly write in all the languages of the world, so we’re pleased to have the press step in to spread the word. From Finnish to Mandarin to Czech and Catalan, you will probably find an article about what we’re up to.

In this blog post, we want to take a quick look back on the coverage we’ve received in the press to give a full picture of the Fairphone story from 2013 to 2014 through the eyes of the press. We sure do write a lot on our own, so we’re happy we can let these intelligent folks take over and do the reporting. Thanks to all these writers and researchers who have remained engaged throughout the last year and a half! We respect the work these storytellers do in reporting on how products are created and larger investigations into our economy. More info for interested press members or journalists can be found on our Press page.
