Sustainable Living in the Nordics

Sustainable Living is striving to make sustainable choices the new norm in the Nordic Region. Through our cross-sectoral programme consisting of six projects, we aim to simplify living in a climate-friendly way, provide concrete guidelines and tools, and inspire behavioral and cultural changes. Join us in creating a more integrated and sustainable Nordic region by 2030. Read more about the programme here.


Hard to get. Easy to choose.

That is the tagline for the first cross-Nordic campaign of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. Raising awareness of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel as a tool for Nordic consumers and businesses to make sustainable choices is an important part of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel project within the Sustainable Living programme. The ecolabel is continuously raising the bar for companies applying to get the label – to ensure that the Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the strictest ecolabel in the Nordics.
