Nordic Swan

The Nordic Swan is the government sustainability seal of the Scandinavian countries. The seal is available for a wide range of products, including candles, computers, investment trusts and supermarkets. The Nordic Ecolabel (also “Nordic Swan”) is backed by the governments of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland.

It has been certifying products in over 60 categories since 1989. The licences are issued by the national offices of the five countries themselves and they also commission testing institutes with audits. The focus of the Nordic Ecolabel is on environmental protection as well as the quality and harmlessness of the products.
