New criteria deliver data on energy, recycled plastics and weight

This data makes it easier for professional IT buyers to measure the effects of their sustainable IT policy and provide greater insights into areas where continued improvement is needed.

The list of flame retardants accepted under TCO Certified is growing

Harmful halogenated flame retardants have been mostly phased out of products certified to TCO Certified. However, they have often been replaced with potentially harmful non-halogenated flame retardants where little information about their safety is available. For the new generation TCO Certified, we only accept non-halogenated flame retardants that have been reviewed using GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals.
