The new TCO Certified Edge criterion E-waste Compensated was launched on March 31. With this criterion, IT product brand owners can make sure that for every certified product that is manufactured, an equivalent amount of e-waste is collected in a country that is lacking in safe recycling systems.
TCO Certified Edge, E-waste Compensated is available for notebooks, smartphones and tablets. Application is now open and you can learn more about the criterion here.
Information about the new criterion was published in a press release. Find it here.
