Nordic  Ecolabelling  

The  spread  of  environmental  toxins  risks  becoming  a  rapidly  growing  problem  for  us  and  for  future  generations,  if  we  do  not  ask  for  a  poison-free  society.

The  Nordic  eco  label  sets  tough  demands  on  harmful  chemicals.  The  goal  is  to  create  a  living  that  is  good  for  both  the  environment  and  human  health.Our  society  causes  various  toxic  pollutants  released  into  the  environment  in  several  ways.  Chemicals  are  spread  through  the  production  of  food,  clothing  electronics,  toys  and  many  more  of  the  things  we  use  in  our  everyday  life.  Direct  emissions  from  drains,  chimneys  or  accidents  are  often  relatively  easy  to  fix.  The  fugitive  emissions,  however,  may  be  more  difficult  to  access.  They  come  from  products  throughout  their  life  span,  both  when  used  and  even  when  they  are  disposed  of  –  if  not  collected  so  they  can  be  reused.

Environmental  Declaration  

An  environmental  declaration  document  provides  information  on  the  paper's  unique  characteristics:  the  product's  ingredients,  energy  consumption,  emissions  to  air  and  water  and  waste  management.  The  documentation  is  direct  product  related  and  contains  detailed  and  transparent  information  and  facts.

Procurement  often  sets  very  high  standards  of  the  documentation;  we  have  therefore  developed  a  detailed  document  that  will  help  you.  Above  you  can  see  examples  of  an  environmental  declaration  papers  as  well  as  a  specification  of  a  municipality  in  Sweden.
