Fairphone is one the most advanced makers of mobile telephones worldwide and renowned for social innovations in the supply chain. In a Fairphone design workshop, a notable step-by-step plan was developed for how mobile telephones could be sustainably produced in the future.

What role does design play in terms of circular economy?

How can products be sustainably designed?
What are the challenges for the dominant economic system to transform itself into a circular economy?
