With several new and updated criteria, this generation aims to drive progress in supply chain responsibility and transparency as well as taking a more circular approach to IT products by extending their usable lifetime and promoting re-use.
Of the thousands of chemicals available for commercial use, only about 1% have ever gone through testing to assess their effects on human health and the environment. In TCO Certified, we use the GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals to identify a pathway to safer alternatives to be used in certified products. GreenScreen offers an objective, scientific way of assessing these potential effects, and finding safer alternatives to the most hazardous substances.
A new generation of TCO Certified is released every three years. When a new generation is launched, products can no longer be certified to the previous generation.
