Nordic Swan Ecolabel
Scandic is the largest Nordic Swan Ecolabeled hotel company with more than 210 certified hotels and a clear ambition to certify all Scandic hotels.
The story of Scandic and “the Swan” is also about a shared journey where, among other things, we’ve set high demands on partners such as our laundry service providers. Today, almost 100% of these are ecolabeled. For many years, the TVs and beds in our hotel rooms have also been ecolabeled - just a few examples of how we’re working with our suppliers and challenging them to be more sustainable.
Being certified by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel involves taking a holistic approach in environmental initiatives to meet strict requirements based on life cycle analysis. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel criteria are usually updated every five years, most recently in January 2022.
Certification also involves complying with strict requirements and earning points in various areas. In total, Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification includes 44 mandatory requirements and six point categories that are monitored regularly.
