Say hello to a more sustainable product

IT products are associated with a wide range of sustainability risks throughout their life cycle. Human rights violations are common in the factories. Harmful substances are used both in products and their manufacture. Products can often have a short lifespan because of poor ergonomics, low quality, and when they are not able to be repaired or upgraded.
This product is a better choice.
It meets all the criteria of TCO Certified, the world’s most comprehensive sustainability certification for IT products. Thank you for making a responsible product choice, that helps drive progress towards a more sustainable future! Criteria in TCO Certified have a life-cycle perspective and balance environmental and social responsibility.

Conformity is verified by independent and approved verifiers that specialize in IT products, social responsibility, or other sustainability issues. Verification is done both before and after the certificate is issued, covering the entire validity period. The process also includes ensuring that corrective actions are implemented in all cases of factory non-conformities. Last but not least, to make sure that the certification and independent verification are accurate, both TCO Certified and the verifiers are reviewed regularly.
