The Nordic Ecolabel

The Nordic Ecolabel

The Nordic Ecolabel is a voluntary, positive ecolabelling of products and services with a common Nordic registered trademark, the Nordic Ecolabel. Its purpose is to give consumers a clear and concise environmental product information, as well as promoting the development of products that are environmentally sound. The Nordic Ecolabel vision is a sustainable society and the mission is to contribute to a sustainable consumerism. The Nordic Ecolabel adopts criteria for the use of chemicals, the amounts of air and water pollution to make the products, as well as energy usage and waste procedures. The Nordic Ecolabel is the official ecolabel for the Nordic countries and the EU Ecolabel is its EU equivalent. Both systems work in similar ways with a lifecycle perspective and continually review criteria. They are often synchronized.
