The EU Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the European Union. The ecolabelling criteria are drawn up by responsible bodies in the Member States. To achieve certification, the products are assessed from a life cycle perspective from raw material to waste. The products have to meet strict environmental, functional and quality requirements. These requirements are tightened on a continuous basis..


Chain-of-custody certification

Chain-of-custody certification enables wood used at the certificated units to be traced back to its origin. Holmen Skog's chain-of-custody certification provides assurance that non-certified wood has not been harvested illegally or in contravention of the rights of indigenous peoples, does not come from controversial sources, has not been genetically modified and does not come from natural forests that have been converted into plantations.
