Join our TCO Certified Stakeholder Group
Our work with an international group of stakeholders representing industry, buyers, subject matter experts and interest organizations is a key element of TCO Certified. Stakeholders provide input into existing processes as well as upcoming criteria drafts and focus areas. As a manufacturer, buyer, subject matter expert or supporter of sustainable IT, your participation in the stakeholder dialog is an important way to make sure your voice is part of this open process.

Moving away from focusing on banned substances alone, the draft proposes the addition of an Accepted Substances List, specifying substances that have been evaluated and declared as safer alternatives.
