Environmental aspects

Nordic Ecolabelling sets ambitious and absolute environmental requirements that are unique for each set of criteria we publish. The environmental impact through a product’s life cycle is assessed from a holistic perspective. There is special focus on climate, circular economy, chemicals and biodiversity in combination with a focus on health and quality.

Divided in four themes, a general approach to environmental aspect are described. Each environmental aspect has a text that explains the general approach and how Nordic Ecolabelling sets requirements to deal with the environmental aspect. Please select the specific set of criteria, to learn how the environmental aspect is handled.
