TCO Development, the company behind the TCO Certified sustainability certification for IT products, has introduced social responsibility (CSR) requirements into its new generation criteria. Building on internationally accepted conventions and reporting mechanisms, the objective is to provide industry with a structured and third party verified way of demonstrating their commitment to improving social practices in manufacturing. Third party verification of socially responsible manufacturing also adds credibility to CSR claims and assures buyers that the products they choose deliver the performance, environmental and social responsibility attributes they demand.
