  1. Swedish Ecolabelling Committee

Swedish Ecolabelling Committee

The Swedish Ecolabelling Committee is responsible for Sweden's position on criteria issues regarding the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel.

When we develop criteria for a product group, we look at many different aspects. We find out if there is a major environmental problem that the product or service is linked to, we are investigating if there is room for improvement and we assess whether the Nordic Swan Ecolabel can affect the product's development. The EU Ecolabel works in a similar way.

Board members:

Christina Lindbäck, Chairperson, appointed by the Swedish government
Emma Schütt, Swedish Consumer Agency
Henry Kenamets, Friends of the Earth Sweden
Anna Melvås, Confederation of Swedish Enterprise
Anne Karlsson, Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions
Anders Finnson, Swedish Water and Wastwater Association
Jens Henriksson, Swedish Consumers Association 
Ann Christiansson, Swedish Trade Federation
Carlos Lopez, Swedish Energy Agency
Erik Gravenfors, Swedish Chemicals Agency
Eva Eiderström, Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC)
Eva Ahlner, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency

The members of the committee are appointed by the Ecolabelling Sweden Board.

When the Swedish Ecolabelling Committee has agreed on how Sweden should deal with various criteria issues, this attitude is driven when the Nordic Ecolabelling Board meets. It is the Nordic Ecolabelling Board that decides on which criteria should apply and which product groups should be Nordic Swan Ecolabelled.
