I was invited to a circularity meeting to speak with representatives from six Skåne municipalities: Ystad, Trelleborg, Eslöv, Höör, Helsingborg and Malmö. They have formed a network to discuss how to implement a more circular handling of IT products. The Region of Skåne and the County Administrative Board are partners in the project.
I explained how TCO Certified can be used in procurement, to make more sustainable and circular choices of IT products easier. TCO Certified includes criteria with a circular approach that promotes a longer product life, as well as criteria for social and environmental sustainability throughout the IT product life cycle. The certification also helps organizations contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
