Our video series gives you a run-through of what’s new and updated in the finalized criteria documents of TCO Certified, generation 9 and how the application period works.
With TCO Certified, generation 9, we take the next step in social and environmental sustainability. Updates and changes are made in several criteria areas:
- In socially responsible manufacturing, we go further up the supply chain. Criteria for anti-corruption and mineral sourcing are improved.
- Our ground-breaking system for safer alternatives to hazardous substances is expanded to include process chemicals used in the manufacture of IT products.
- New sustainability performance indicators (SPI) are added. This helps purchasing organizations make informed choices and measure the sustainability impact.
- We move forward to enable circular IT solutions with more ambitious criteria aimed at extending the life of IT products, improving recyclability, and reducing e-waste.
