Svanen

Svanen (the Swan) is the Nordic region's official eco-label. We review the environmental impact of goods and services throughout their entire lifecycles, from origination to disposal. We evaluate environmental claims against strict criteria, but also consider functionality and quality.

Svanen's vision is for sustainable society and sustainable consumption. Since there continue to be tightening claims, we are driving turnover step by step towards sustainable consumption. Today the Swan label exists for the goods and services of 66 different groups
