STATEMENT: Record growth of the most sustainable IT products

- Interest in more sustainable IT products is growing at record speed. More than 1,000 product models have already been certified to TCO Certified, Generation 9. With more certified products from more brands, it's easier for shoppers to make more sustainable choices

STOCKHOLM, Oct. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TCO Certified is the world's leading sustainability certification for IT products and a tool that helps buyers and purchasing organizations get sustainability right. TCO Certified, generation 9, was launched at the end of the year 2021. Since then, products have been certified at a record pace. The milestone of 1,000 certified new product models has already been reached, more than a month earlier than when the previous generation was launched. This is despite stricter environmental and social sustainability criteria, for example greater transparency around certified products with more than 40 new Sustainability Performance Indicators (SPIs) added and an expanded system for safer substances. which now also covers process chemicals used in the manufacture of IT products.

The direction is clear: the IT industry's interest in sustainability is at a record level and growing. IT brand engagement is largely driven by buyers, both in the private and public sectors, who are demanding more sustainable IT products.

It's great to see progress accelerating and more brands taking responsibility and joining us on the journey towards our vision that all IT products have a sustainable lifecycle. With more certified products, it is easier for buyers to make better choices, which we also see more and more buyers wanting to do," explained Sören Enholm, CEO of TCO Development, the organization behind TCO Certified.

TCO Certified helps buyers reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce electronic waste, make circular purchases and maximize the value of IT investments. The criteria are updated every three years so that, step by step, certified products become more sustainable.

All currently certified product models, more than 3,500, appear in our Product Finder. You can find information about the criteria on TCO Certified here.
