TCO Certified, organized by TCO Development Sweden, is the world’s most comprehensive sustainability certification for IT products. It concerns socially-responsible manufacturing and environmental awareness, including the handling of hazardous substances and recycling, as well as user ergonomics.
EIZO has actively participated in the TCO labeling system for monitors since its inception in 1992.
