CFIT Framework document

The Circular and Fair ICT Pact is an international partnership that aims to accelerate sustainable production and use of circular and fair ICT products through the power of procurement. The CFIT framework for Circular and Fair ICT Procurement, now available for download, summarizes what that means for CFIT participants.

This first version of the CFIT framework was developed with a working group of CFIT participants and a few external experts. Besides defining ambitions around four core themes, the working group also discussed key strategies for procuring organizations to work towards these ambitions. The strategies are:

  • Buy less,
  • Buy better,
  • Use better,
  • Use longer.

For each strategy, commitments have been formulated, which CFIT participants will consider as part of their procurement strategies. To illustrate what implementation of the commitments could look like in practice, the CFIT secretariat has teamed up with a consultant to document examples, which will be published in the period to come.

The CFIT working group on monitoring and evaluation, is also developing a self-assessment monitoring framework that builds on these commitments.

CFIT organizes a webinar on February 7th, to give an introduction to the framework document and to answer any questions you may have! Please find more information and the link to register in the box linked to this article.
