Introducing supporting organizations in the Circular and Fair ICT Pact

In our collective pursuit of a sustainable and circular ICT sector, the Circular and Fair ICT Pact (CFIT) recognizes the importance of collaboration and engagement with diverse stakeholders. CFIT participants, procuring and coordinating organizations, are at the heart of driving change. However, CFIT acknowledges that achieving its ambitious objectives requires a broader coalition. That's where supporting organizations come in. These organizations endorse CFIT's mission, contribute their expertise, and play a crucial role in shaping a sustainable future for the ICT industry.

What are supporting organizations for CFIT?

CFIT participants, comprised of procuring organizations from both the public and private sectors, as well as coordinating organizations such as national, regional, or local governments, form the backbone of CFIT. In order to foster collaboration and gather diverse perspectives, CFIT actively engages and seeks input from other stakeholders. Supporting organizations are our first ring of stakeholders to connect with and can be very diverse organizations that are active in the field of contributing to sustainable ICT. Examples include NGOs, certification, labeling, and monitoring bodies, knowledge institutes, market parties (such as suppliers, OEMs, and manufacturers), and more. Supporting organizations become part of CFIT by signing a letter of support, demonstrating their commitment to endorsing CFIT's ambitions.

As CFIT moves forward, we will continue to expand our network of supporting organizations, creating a diverse and powerful coalition of stakeholders committed to advancing sustainability in the ICT sector. Through collaborative efforts, shared expertise, and a collective focus on driving positive change, CFIT and its supporting organizations are poised to make a tangible and lasting impact on the industry.
