Nordic Swan Ecolabel
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official ecolabel in the Nordic region. Thier goal is to reduce the environmental impact of consumption and production. When setting requirements, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel therefore assesses the entire life cycle of the products, from raw materials to production, use, disposal and recycling. The requirements promote sustainable use of resources, recycling and reuse and reduce waste in all parts of the life cycle of ecolabelled products and services. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is a powerful tool for securing a sustainable future – and actively contributes to accomplishing 11 of the 17 sustainable development goals. On an overall level the Nordic Swan Ecolabel contributes to goal 12, “Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”. In addition, it contributes to achieving several of the other goals. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel places most importance on environmental aspects, but also puts emphasis on health and social conditions where relevant.
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel creates sustainable solutions based on a life cycle assessment and an overall goal to reduce the environmental impact from production and consumption of goods. Tough requirements in all phases of a products life cycle and continuously tightening of these requirements to create a sustainable development is the foundation of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, and what distinguishes the label from other labels – as well as being an official, independent and 3rd party certification.
