TCO Certified for data center products — available now!

IT products in data centers are connected to both social and environmental sustainability risks throughout their life cycle. To help tackle these problems, TCO Certified includes three of the most important components of data centers: network equipment, data storage products and servers.

These product categories are part of TCO Certified, generation 8 and the same criteria areas are covered. TCO Certified, generation 8 drives responsibility and transparency in the supply chain and reduces or eliminates the use of hazardous substances in IT products. Certified products must be energy efficient and circular solutions are enabled through criteria focusing on product repairability. TCO Certified also helps purchasing organizations contribute to national and global sustainability goals.
