Webinar: Best practice Sustainable IT Procurement – 08.03.2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CET
Social responsibility factors are a growing priority for IT purchasers. Part two of our 2016 Sustainable IT webinar series takes a closer look at Sustainable IT Procurement practices, focusing on how to specify and verify that the products you buy are made under socially responsible conditions.
The webinar will provide practical advice and best practice learnings for purchasers working to include sustainability criteria as part of an IT purchasing program. We will also look at how to verify that the products you buy actually meet your sustainability criteria – how much can you do yourself? What follow-up verification support is built-in to programs such as TCO Certified?
Kristian Hemström from the Stockholm County Council will present findings from a recent evaluation of their IT contract, including follow up on environmental and social criteria. Were there positive outcomes? What are the success factors and challenges related to the follow up on social criteria and IT products?
Niclas Rydell from TCO Development will outline the updates to the new generation TCO Certified, including increased verification of IT brand efforts in socially responsible manufacturing as well as verification of environmental and social criteria.
