Search for conflict-free and Fairtrade gold for the Fairphone


I want to point out a new blog post about Fairphone’s search for responsibly sourced gold.

That is: How to get conflict-free or Fairtrade gold into our supply chain.


Very interesting article and definitely worth reading!

Please do nevertheless look into ways of setting up a conflict-free supply chain for gold (and also tungsten) in Africa! I think, since Fair Trade gold from South America is already demanded by jewellery manufacturers, there is no need for FP to promote its use. The use of conflict-free gold from DRC should be promoted.
