Grease-proof Paper 049
The Nordic Ecolabel is an official ecolabel with absolute requirements. A Nordic Ecolabelled grease-proof paper is amongst the least environmental hazardous within its group and a Nordic Ecolabel on a grease-proof paper shows that the product fulfils strict environmental requirements.
Requirements imposed are based on a life cycle assessment of the product and concern production, use and waste. In the case of grease-proof paper this is achieved by using certified raw materials, by limiting the use of environmentally harmful chemicals, by producing low emissions to air and water and by reducing the energy consumption.
To be awarded a Nordic Ecolabel licence, the requirements in the Basic Module, the Chemical Module and the requirements of the Supplementary Module must be fulfilled.
The criteria’s environmental requirements can be used by each manufacturer as a guide on how they can contribute to a development towards a sustainable society.
The granting of an ecolabel to a product confirms that resources have been used efficiently and that environmentally friendly production methods have been applied. Nordic Ecolabelling has evaluated the raw materials used in the product and only raw materials of the highest quality in environmental terms may be used in Nordic Ecolabelled paper products.
