Supporting the Rising Demand for Sustainability

TCA stated that as companies and countries around the world aim to achieve net zero by 2050, sustainability has become one of the most important trends in the ICT industry. To support this endeavor, the BC Award has included the Sustainable Tech Special Award for the second time. The Sustainable Tech Special Award puts 3 main factors for the judging criteria: material usage, chemical inclusion, and climate change impact.

This year, the winners of the Sustainable Tech Special Award are:

The Framework Laptop 16 comes with up upgradeable, modular components that comply with industry standards to ensure compatibility with existing components and maximum customizability.

Asus's AirVision M1 uses microdisplays to effectively reduce the energy demand while also making the device small enough for easy storage and portability to suit the needs of modern living.
