The Nordic Swan Ecolabel environmental requirements for cleaning products

Nordic Swan Ecolabelled cleaning products are among the best cleaning products in terms of environmental profile. The whole life cycle of the products is taken into account and strict requirements are set concerning the environmental and health effects of the constituent substances and with regard to packaging. The use phase and raw material extraction are also taken into account in the requirements.

Nordic Swan Ecolabelled cleaning products:

  • Meet strict requirements concerning environmentally hazardous chemicals, including requirements on ecotoxicity and biodegradability
  • Meet strict requirements concerning chemicals that are harmful to health, including a ban on the sensitising preservative MI
  • Offer effective cleaning performance with a small amount, so the product lasts longer and conserves the planet’s resources.
  • Packaging requirements contribute to a circular economy, for example by addressing packaging design and material choices.
