TCO Certified is a global sustainability certification for IT products, founded over 25 years ago. Criteria include socially responsible manufacturing, environment, user health, safety and ergonomic design. All criteria are developed from a life cycle perspective, covering manufacturing, use and recovery phases. Certified product models and their manufacturing facilities are independently verified for compliance. The certification covers eight products categories: displays, notebooks, tablets, smartphones, desktops, all-in-one PCs, projectors and headsets. TCO Certified is a Type 1 Ecolabel in accordance with ISO 14024. 

FSC® (the Forest Stewardship Council®) is a global not-for-profit organisation that sets the standards for what is a responsibly managed forest, both environmentally and socially.

When timber leaves an FSC-certified forest we ensure companies along the supply chain meet our best practice standards also, so that when a product bears the FSC logo, you can be sure it’s been made from responsible sources. In this way, FSC certification helps forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping you make ethical and responsible choices at your local supermarket, bookstore, furniture retailer, and beyond.

We don’t set these standards alone. We consult with our global network of environmental, social, and economic members to ensure that forest standards represent everyone’s needs, from Indigenous Peoples to endangered animal species.

FSC members include some of the world’s leading environment groups, social organisations, businesses as well as forest owners and managers, processing companies, campaigners, and individuals like you.

FSC is also a member of the ISEAL alliance, a global association of social and environmental standards systems that includes Fairtrade, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and Rainforest Alliance.

The Green Electronics Council (GEC) is a mission driven non-profit that seeks to achieve a world in which only sustainable IT products are designed, manufactured, and purchased. GEC is the manager of EPEAT, the leading global type 1 ecolabel for IT products used by public and private sector purchasers in over 43 countries. EPEAT’s life-cycle criteria are developed via a balanced voluntary consensus process that assures representation of non-profits, academia, manufacturers and policymakers.  This approach to criteria development is why EPEAT is able to offer purchasers access to over 4,000 sustainable IT products, more than any other IT ecolabel. EPEAT covers five IT product categories: computers/tablets, imaging equipment/printers, televisions, mobile phones, and servers.
