The company has its origins in TCO, Tjänstemännens Centralorganisation (the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), which at the beginning of the 1980s noted an increase in health problems among office employees. Problems related to poorly designed IT equipment brought about the creation of the TCO labelling system. The label takes legislation as well as voluntary agreements into consideration, but often sets stricter requirements to the benefit of users and the environment. The TCO label is independent of manufacturers and professional and industrial organizations.The difference between TCO and many other labels is that it covers specific product categories.
