TCO Development will be presenting the importance of sustainability in the smartphone supply chain as part of the United Nations High Level Political Forum in New York on July 9. The side event “Scaling Solutions for Goal 12 for Smartphones and ICT” will present implementable solutions that can help companies and public sector organizations make more sustainable choices when procuring smartphones.
In February and March, TCO Development is participating in three exciting events: ISE in Amsterdam, the Nordic Conference on Sustainable Healthcare in Stockholm and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Will you be there too? Then let’s meet up to discuss sustainability and IT products.
Are you a purchaser of IT products or have an interest in how to contribute to more sustainable purchasing? Come and listen to the experts and meet international independent ecolabels to find out more on how creating a pull in the market stimulates greening of the economy.
Increasingly purchasers are demanding more transparency into the environmental and social impacts of the IT products they buy. They’re also uniquely positioned to affect positive change at a scale that can transform markets. That is why new US guidelines for sustainable purchasing of IT and other products will be discussed this week at theSustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) annual summit, in Washington, DC May 24 – 26.
