The environmental gains that have been made are one of the proofs of our success. Examples of this are the decreases in the emissions of organic substances to the wastewater and the reductions of chloro-organic substances. This has resulted in, among other things, better sea-floors and healthier fish.
Nordic Ecolabelling has set environmental requirements concerning the origin of the raw wood material, the emissions to air and water, the use of energy as well as the chemicals used in the production of the pulp and paper.
A life-cycle perspective
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is a Type 1 Ecolabel. Products are reviewed through a life-cycle perspective, from source to waste.
