TCO'99 STA TEMENT
Congratulations!
You have just purchased
a TC099
approved
and Iabelled
pToduct!
Your
choice has provided
you with a
product developed
for professional
use. Your
purchase
has also contributed
to reduc]ng
the burden
on
the environment
and also to the further
development
of environmentally
adapted
electronics
products.
Th[s product
meets the requirements
for the TCO'99
scheme
which
provides
for an international
envwonmental
and quahty
labell Irrg of personal
computers.
The Iabe[ling
scheme was developed
as a
joint
effort
by the TCO
(The
Swedish
Confederation
of Professorial
Employees),
Svenska
Naturskyddsforen
lngen (The
Swedish
Society for Nature
Conservation),
Statens Energimyndighet
(The
Swedish
National
Energy
Administration)
and SEMKO
AB
The requirements
cover
a wide
range of issues' environment,
ergonomics,
usability,
reduction
of
electric
and magnetic
fields,
energy
consumption
and electrical
safety
Why do we have environmentally Iabelled computers?
1n many countries.
environmental
Iabelling
has become
an established
method
for encouraging
the
adaptation
of goods and serwces
to the enwronment
The mam problem,
as far as computers
and other
electronics
equ]pment
are concerned,
is that envmonmentally
harmful
substances
are used both in the
products
and during
their manufacture
Since it is not so far posstble
to satisfactorily
recycle
the
majority
of electronics
equtpment,
most of these potentially
damaging
substances
sooner
or later enter
nature
There are also other characteristics
of a computer,
such as energy consumption
levels, that are important
from the wewpomts
of both the work (internal)
and natural
(external)
environments.
Since
all methods
of elecfncity
generauon
have a negat]ve
effect
on the environment
(e g acidic and climate-influencing
emiss]ons,
radioactive
waste),
It IS wtal to save energy
Electronics
equipment
m offices
is often
left
running
continuously
and thereby
consumes
a lot of energy.
What doesthe environmental Iabelling involve?
The environmental
demands
has been developed
by Svenska
Na\urskyddsforeningen
(The
Swedish
Soc]ery for Nature
Corrservat]on).
These
demands
impose
restrictions
on the presence
and use of heavy
metals,
bromlnated
and chlorinated
flame
retardants,
CFCS (freons)
and chlorinated
solvents,
among
other things,
The product
must be prepared
for recycling
and the manufacturer
is obliged
to have an
environmental
policy
which
must be adhered
to In each country
where
the company
Implements
its
operational
policy.
The energy
requirements
include
a demand
that the computer
and/or
display,
after a certain period of
Irsactwity,
shall reduce its power
consumption
to a lower
level m one or more stages. The length of time
to reactivate
the computer
shal I be reasonable
for the user
