The Nordic Swan Ecolabel and EU-Ecolabel
The objective of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU-Ecolabel is to reduce the overall environmental impact from production and consumption of goods. Both labels look at the entire product's life cycle and the environmental problems that arise along the way - for the benefit of people, the environment and the earth's resources.
You will find the Nordic Swan and EU-Ecolabel on more than 16,000 different products and services - from soap, laundry powder, household paper, toys, construction products, electrical items and furniture to eco-labeled services such as cleaning, printing and hotels. When you choose a product labeled with the Nordic Swan or EU-Ecolabel, you help reduce environmental impact - and whatever product you choose, you can be sure that they are among the best in their category.
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official Nordic ecolabel. The Nordic Swan was founded by the Nordic Council of Ministers in 1989, and Denmark joined in 1997.
The EU-Ecolabel is the official European ecolabel. The EU-Ecolabel was established in 1992 by the European Commission, and Denmark has been part of the start.
