As the mobile electronics world gathered in February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, talk about the human cost of mobile technologies were glaringly absent among the thousands of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices on show by the major IT brands.
These days it's almost impossible to know which electronics products are sustainably designed and are made under conditions where workers are treated fairly. That's why there's TCO Certified.
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 24-27, is one of the world’s most important venues for the IT and Telecom Industry. TCO Development will be on hand to discuss sustainability issues related to IT and mobile products.
In conjunction with Eco Now on October 11, TCO Development and Fairphone hosted a live webcast on how we’re working to bring about positive change in the working conditions of IT manufacturing.

Inferior working conditions in IT manufacturing facilities make it almost impossible to buy computer products without violating human rights. An unacceptable reality that we can change if we work together.
