WEBINAR: new report on navigating the sustainable IT revolution

Presentation of the report "Impacts and Insights: Navigating the Sustainable IT Revolution"

DATE: 16th June 2021

TIME: 15:00 CET

Join us for a presentation of our upcoming report Impacts and Insights: Navigating the Sustainable IT Revolution. The report will launch in June and focuses on the critical role of independent verification and how to avoid false claims and greenwash by getting proof in your IT procurement.

No purchaser wants to buy a device containing unknown hazardous substances, with unidentified health risks for the worker or the end user. Nor should any organization accept forced labor and labor law violations where their products are made. As stakeholder pressure mounts, IT purchasers stand at a crossroads. Traditional price and performance aspects must be balanced with complex environmental and social risks.

In the report, we navigate sustainability risks associated with IT procurement – and the tools available to reduce them. We look into the “why” and “how” of how you as a procurer can join the sustainable IT revolution, and also prove your efforts.

This webinar will present findings and key takeaways from the report – including a straightforward method for purchasers to evaluate and compare ecolabels and sustainability certifications.

When we launched TCO Certified nearly 30 years ago, sustainability was a niche interest for a few enthusiasts. Not anymore. Sustainability is essential to core business and proving your efforts is becoming the norm. This means having independently verified claims of what you do, and what you buy. For the IT industry, sustainability demands in procurement have become a powerful driver of progress. The right ecolabels are there to help purchasers use their influence in a credible, powerful way.
