Swan Label approved products fulfill the strict ecological requirements and specified quality requirements throughout the products complete lifecycle from raw materials to production, use and recycling the product. The standard requirement to get the swan label is for the product quality to be at the same level or higher than products which are not swan label approved.
Known as the Swan Label, this official Nordic ecolabel can only be given to products and services that in their own category are the most ecological. The requirements for the label are set so that only 20-30% of products in each category can fulfill them.
In order to separate the most ecological products from others, the qualifications of the label are renewed every few years.
