Tissue paper

The product group includes cellulose-based tissue paper and tissue products for both private and professional use. This means that, for example, toilet paper, kitchen and household towels, napkins, hand towels, facial tissue and handkerchiefs can apply for the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is a strong tool for producing tissue products with reduced impact on the environment and climate.

The requirements include, among others:

  • Energy and climate efficient manufacturing with reduced energy consumption and reduced emissions of greenhouse gases. Fossil oil or coal are not allowed in production.
  • All virgin fibres must be traceable and come from controlled sources – and at least 70 % of the fibres must come from certified forests or be recycled.
  • Limits for emissions to air and water during production.
  • Environmental and health properties of the chemicals used in production.
