Information for sustainability professionals
Technology is an essential part of business and everyday life. But IT products and their manufacture have been linked to poor working conditions at production facilities as well as an increase in environmentally hazardous substances. By demanding more sustainable product choices in your IT procurement, you can help meet your organization’s sustainability goals.
TCO Development advances Sustainable IT. This means the manufacturing, use and recycling of IT products are carried out with regard to environmental, social and economic responsibility. We make it easier for your organization to include and verify sustainability in IT purchasing with the support of TCO Certified, the sustainability certification for IT products.
All TCO Certified products meet strict criteria for social responsibility at the facilities where the product is manufactured, user safety and ergonomic design as well minimal environmental impact for both the product and its production during the whole life cycle.
For an overview of TCO Certified, we’ve put together a summary of our criteria as well as a listing of the product categories we cover. You can also read our guidelines for sustainable IT purchasing in your organization. You can also search our database of all TCO Certified products.
Together we can make a difference and move IT in a more sustainable direction!
