CFIT Framework and practical examples

The CFIT Framework for Circular and Fair ICT Procurement outlines what circular


and fair procurement of ICT means to its participants. In the coming weeks we will be regularly publishing inspiring case studies that illustrate what implementation can look like. The first examples available are around:

  • Promoting carbon and energy reduction in the supply chain as well as the use phase (The Netherlands)
  • Promoting due diligence and transparency (Belgium)
  • Promoting reparability through procurement (Norway)
  • Avoiding the supply of unnecessary accessories (Switzerland)

Follow us on LinkedIn if you would like to be alerted when additional examples are available.
