Webinar on-demand: Closing the gap – the role of purchasers in driving a more socially responsible IT supply chain
Listen to our first webinar of the year where we discussed our supply chain responsibility findings from 2017 and what they mean for you as an IT purchaser.
This year TCO Certified turns 25. Naturally we’re proud of this milestone and our progress toward a sustainable life cycle for IT products. But there’s a lot more work to do. Reaching this long term goal demands that we together renew our commitment to solving the many environmental and social challenges connected to electronics.
