Interest in sustainable IT at record high

Interest in sustainability across the IT industry is at a record high, and continuing to grow.

So says sustainability certification company, TCO Certified, which has this week reached a milestone of 1,000 certified new product models, as defined by strict environmental and social sustainability criteria.

TCO Certified helps purchasers lower greenhouse gas emissions, reduce e-waste, and achieve circular procurement. Its criteria, updated every three years, includes a number of sustainability performance indicators and a system for safer substances that now also covers process chemicals used in the manufacture of IT products.

“It’s fantastic to see progress accelerating and more brands taking responsibility and joining us on the journey towards our vision where all IT products have a sustainable lifecycle. With more certified products, it becomes easier for purchasers to make better choices, which we also see more and more purchasers wanting to do,” says Sören Enholm, CEO of TCO Development, the organisation behind TCO Certified.

Engagement among IT brands is driven by purchasers in both the private and public sectors, TCO says.
