Introducing the Nordic Swan Ecolabel

What is the Nordic Swan Ecolabel?

  • One of the world’s toughest and most recognized environmental certifications 
  • The official ecolabel of the Nordic countries 
  • Established in 1989 by the Nordic Council of Ministers to make it easy to make environmentally sound choices 
  • Follows the ISO 14024 standard

How TENA achieved the certification

How TENA Achieved the Certification

TENA products already fulfilled most of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel criteria. Certification is a natural step for TENA since the Nordic Swan evaluates the environmental impact of a product in key phases of its life cycle. We work even broader and have analyzed the full life cycle and impact of our products for decades. By adding the certification we provide an additional tool to make it easier for you to evaluate the sustainability of our products.

By securing the share of renewable raw materials and increasing the share of recycled pack material along with the usage of Nordic Swan approved pulp we qualified for the certification. Naturally, TENA products still have the same leading function, efficiency and safety as before.

From cradle to grave - TENA is committed to sustainability

Ecolabelling our products is part of our broad, internationally recognized sustainability efforts. As the global leader in incontinence care, TENA has long experience of working with a full life cycle perspective. We assess in accordance with the ISO 14040-series.
