25 years of driving sustainable development in IT products

The organization behind the sustainability certification TCO Certified is TCO Development. We work globally and our vision is a future where all IT products have an environmentally and socially responsible life cycle.

To achieve this, we release a new generation of TCO Certified every three years. By developing our criteria and verification methods continuously, we address new sustainability challenges and keep on pace with advances in technology. Step by step, we continue to push the industry to become more sustainable.

Our story began more than 25 years ago when we introduced TCO ’92, which included an energy saving sleep mode for computer displays. Since then it has evolved into the world-leading sustainability certification it is today. TCO Certified is now available for eleven product categories and is used by purchasing organizations all over the world. More than 3,500 products are currently certified.
