Growing purchaser demand for more sustainable electronics has contributed to Fairphone 4 being the first product model certified according to TCO Certified, generation 8 for smartphones.

With TCO Certified, purchasing organizations have a direct effect on the most important sustainability challenges connected to electronics — such as climate, circular economy, hazardous substances, and supply chain responsibility. Compliance with all criteria is mandatory and independently verified by accredited experts, both before and after a certificate is issued.

Benefits of asking for TCO Certified:

  • Robust criteria that cover both environmental and social aspects.
  • Independent verification of compliance is mandatory.
  • A system of ongoing monitoring and follow-up that holds the industry accountable.

TCO Certified is free to use for purchasing organizations and covers IT product categories such as computers, mobile devices, display products, data center products – and now smartphones. Currently, around 3500 product models from major brands are certified.

You will find all certified products and have access to product information, custom alerts, calculations, and more in our Product Finder.
