Partnership with Fairphone 

 

The People's Operator (AIM: TPOP), the cause-based commercial mobile virtual network operator is delighted to announce a distribution partnership with Fairphone, manufacturers of the world's first ethical smartphone. 

 

TPO will now be able to offer its customers, in addition to its innovative and competitive subscription deals, the opportunity to buy their own smartphone.

 

The Fairphone handset is manufactured under fairer working conditions, uses traceable and conflict-free raw materials, and is the first modular phone on the market, designed for easy repair and therefore significantly reducing its environmental footprint. It offers competitive functionality in combination with a unique fair proposition in the market. There are currently more than 100,000 Fairphone handsets in circulation. 

 

The partnership represents the first step in TPO's drive to build a network of ethical operators, producers and suppliers to support its core business proposition.  

 

Monique Lempers, Value Chain and Commercial Director for Fairphone, said:

 

"We are truly excited to enter this partnership with TPO, as our missions, brands & products strongly connect. We believe that joining efforts in going to the market will strengthen both our stories and hence our customers' demand for fairer calling. "
