Four informative guides will help organizations take social and environmental responsibility when purchasing IT products. The guides are presented by the organization behind the global leading sustainability certification, TCO Certified.
Computers, displays and other IT products come with a number of sustainability risks, such as conflict minerals, hazardous substances and poor working conditions in the supply chain. Choosing IT products that are better for people and the planet can make a big difference.
“The expanding role of procurement means that issues like climate impact, waste diversion and supply chain ethics are now priority factors with each purchase. We want to help IT purchasers address both environmental and supply chain responsibility risk connected to the electronics they buy”, says Clare Hobby Director Purchaser Engagement Global at TCO Development, the organization behind TCO Certified.
The collection of guides includes four core documents to help purchasers get started or advance in their sustainable procurement.
