Bas Van Abel - Fairphone
Last quote by Bas Van Abel
This is one of those dilemmas you run into: should we avoid an area because there's conflict? Or avoid the mines where there is no conflict but are still in the area? Or do you stay there and take for granted that there is child labour and try to improve the situation? I think that what companies have been doing is to mitigate risk, so they avoid problems. I think we have to surface them and try to find solutions.feedback

So they got the stuff out of the ground, risking their lives, and when they get out to the surface, they start selling it. There is military rule, and the rebel groups stand at the entrance of the mine and they say 'everything you make, I want half'. So they pay half of their money, and that money is used in conflicts. The money that is made out of the mining is fuelling the war. You could say that you are potentially funding a war by buying your phones.feedback
