This year, we’re launching the Next Generation TCO Certified. Beginning in late March, we’ll be releasing draft versions of new and updated criteria. TCO Certified is developed continually in an open process, including dialog with multiple stakeholders, resulting in a new generation every three years.
The pre-testing process allows industry and our independent verification partners to test products and apply for certification in advance of the official launch, which is scheduled for November 11. This is a great opportunity for you to be among the first to certify!
On June 2, 2014 the new Energy Star 6.0 for computers for energy efficiency came into effect. Like TCO Certified, Energy Star updates requirements regularly in line with new technologies and user demands. This update will also be included in relevant TCO Certified criteria. So if you purchase a TCO Certified notebook, display, desktop or all-in-one PC you can be assured that it also is verified to meet the latest Energy Star requirements as well as all TCO Certified sustainability criteria. Buyers should make sure to request the latest version of TCO Certified in purchasing specifications.
Manufacturers of IT products can now verify that their products meet sustainability criteria through the sustainability certification TCO Certified. Lenovo is the first that can provide all-in-one computers that satisfy the heightened CSR criteria and these models are within the ThinkCentre M92z and M72z series
All In One PCs offer full desktop and display performance in a space saving design. TCO certification also ensures the AIO is designed for the environment, energy efficiency and usability.
