Four strong advantages of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification
Supports your green transition and product development
Few companies have the resources to be environmental experts themselves. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is an effective tool to develop products that are among the best for the environment in their respective categories. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel guides you to the areas that are most important for you to improve. You can use the requirements in the design phase, in the choice of raw materials and for the actual production process. You will also get help in setting requirements for your suppliers, so that you are in control of the value chain.
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel can also guide you in making more circular products and reducing your climate footprint. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel considers all relevant environmental parameters throughout the product’s life cycle.

Strengthen your competitiveness
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is one of the world’s toughest environmental certification schemes. The certification documents that the company’s products are among the environmentally best.

You can also save both time and money on marketing efforts, as the Nordic Swan Ecolabel makes your sustainability communication more effective and credible.
Strengthening your profile as an attractive workplace
With the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, you can increase your employees’ job satisfaction. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel helps to ensure a better working environment, and employees are often proud to work for a company that holds documentation of its environmental measures.
