The Nordic Ecolabel

Nordic ecolabel Finland has granted Hansaprint the right to use the Nordic Ecolabel (the Swan label) in all its printed product groups in recognition of its environmentally friendly production processes and the recyclability of the end products. We were the first Finnish heatset printing house to be awarded the right to use the Swan label in 1993. The current licence is valid until 31.12.2017.

The principle of continuous improvement in environmental issues also includes the fulfilment of the increasingly stringent requirements of the Swan Label. Requirements are created for items such as the printing paper, chemicals, emissions and waste management.

Hansaprint's environmental management practices are based on the ISO 14001 standard and the principle of continuous improvement: every year, we reduce the environmental effects of our operations further. The ISO 14001 certificate granted by DNV covers all Hansaprint operations located in Finland.

Our environmental practices meet the requirements of the Nordic Ecolabel and are guided by an annual environmental programme, legal requirements and regulations stipulated by authorities.

We also expect our partners to follow responsible environmental practices, because we believe that this benefits all parties, including consumers.
