Nordic Swan Ecolabel buildings
Can a building be ecolabelled? Yes, at least environmentally friendly! If the building is built under controlled conditions, with consideration for both the environment and human health. But how can you prove it? This is where the Nordic Swan Ecolabel comes in!
Here you will find information about Nordic Swan Ecolabel buildings. Be inspired as a private person what it's like to work and reside in a Nordic Swan Ecolabel building or read about what applies in your professional role as a builder or supplier of building materials.
Applying for generation 3 or generation 4?
Generation 3 - Small houses, apartment buildings and buildings for schools and pre-schools
Licence applicants applying after February 28, 2023 with planned construction start before September 30, 2024 can apply under Generation 3. They should complete their certification by September 30, 2026.
However, if a project is delayed with start or end, this may be a reason to extend the project's possibility to build according to generation 3 even after September 30, 2026. Nordic Ecolabelling will treat each case individually.

Applications for Nordic Swan Ecolabel New buildings, generation 4, are being accepted from 15 May 2023.
