This year TCO Certified turns 25. Naturally we’re proud of this milestone and our progress toward a sustainable life cycle for IT products. But there’s a lot more work to do. Reaching this long term goal demands that we together renew our commitment to solving the many environmental and social challenges connected to electronics.
In 2016 we'll focus on product and factory follow up verification, as well as kicking off the 3-year process to develop the next generation TCO Certified.
We will be publishing on-demand versions of the presentations from Sustainable IT Summit 2015 in 3 parts. First out is Niclas Rydells presentation about The New Generation TCO Certified.
Learning how to drive social and environmental responsibility in the IT space was in focus when IT buyers, manufacturers and other stakeholders gathered in Stockholm on November 11 at TCO Development’s inaugural Sustainable IT Summit.
Now that the pre-test period for the New Generation TCO Certified is open, many of you have asked how to apply. We're including some general information here that we hope you find helpful.
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!
