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.
IT brand HP has joined Dell and Lenovo in achieving the TCO Certified sustainability certification for a range of notebook computers.
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.
In response to growing purchaser demand, more leading notebook brands are choosing TCO Certified as a mark of sustainable design and responsible manufacturing, making it easier for organizations to identify products that meet their sustainable IT goals.
The TCO Certified usability and eco-label for ICT products today awarded the prestigious TCO Certified Edge designation to the new Samsung Notebook Series 9 for outstanding achievement in outdoor readability.
