The IT industry is complex and finding reliable data about products and manufacturing conditions can be a challenge. The lack of verified product claims can lead to unfair competition between brands, as well as greenwash and bluewash. TCO Certified includes independently verified sustainability data that helps you make informed decisions and measure your sustainability progress.

To drive sustainable development in the complex IT industry, accurate and comparable information about products and manufacturing conditions is needed. Transparency around this type of data also helps purchasing organizations make more informed product choices, and measure and report the true sustainability impact of the certified models they actually buy. Another positive effect of giving purchasers and industry access to verified product claims is that it helps IT brands compare their sustainability performance with peers, and reduces the risk of unfair competition and greenwash.
