The environmental load of the Nordic ecolabelled chemical construction products is lower as they meet strict environmental and health requirements. Emissions into the atmosphere and water are also limited. The criteria related to the substances of the Nordic ecolabel are always more stringent than the legislation. Following the precautionary principle, unknown chemicals are prohibited until research results can prove their safety.
In the Nordic ecolabel criteria, the environmental impact of products and services is examined comprehensively from many different perspectives. The requirements help curb climate change, support the preservation of natural diversity, and promote resource efficiency and a circular economy.
Nordic ecolabel guides towards sustainable, environmentally friendly consumption. Nordic ecolabel is an official type 1 environmental label whose criteria consider the product's entire life cycle.

Nordic ecolabel makes it easier for users, companies and organizations to participate in the green transition.
