The official eco-labeling system for the Nordic countries. It is a voluntary and neutral seal-of-approval certification program, which was introduced in 1989, as an attempt to unify the emerging eco-labeling programs throughout the Nordic countries. The green swan symbol now has high consumer recognition and respect, covering over 60 product groups. The label is usually valid for three years, after which the criteria is revised and the company must reapply.
