TCO Certified eco-label recommended as part of new STEP AV Sustainability program
TCO Certified, the international third party eco-label for AV and IT products, has been recognized by InfoComm International's new sustainability rating system for AV installations –STEP (Sustainability Technology Environments Program). As part of the program, TCO Certified projectors and monitors will be recommended for pro AV equipment purchases.
STEP will promote sustainable practices by the associations’ members and their customers. The rating system will be a tool for owners and technology providers to plan for and implement sustainable practices in their technology projects. By recommending TCO Certified products as part of STEP, buyers and installers can be assured they are choosing products designed for the environment, as well as high performance.
Allen Weidman, sustainability officer, InfoComm Internationaland executive director of the STEP Foundation comments: “InfoComm is delighted to include the TCO Certified designation as a tool for identifying sustainable technology products. The STEP program is dedicated to promoting existing sustainability designations that have been vetted and accepted by consumers.”
