Helland is now launching more furniture with the Nordic Ecolabel, and these products are treated with a special water-based varnish. This varnish has a high durability, but we advise against the use of disinfectants as this can shorten the life of the product. In addition, the Nordic Ecolabel will also require that furniture textiles that have either the Eu Ecolabel or the Nordic Ecolabel are used.
The following furniture has the Nordic Ecolabel:
Bo chair, Duun chair, Duun stackable chair, Duun high back chair, Duun seating group 1, 2 and 3 seats, Modus stacking chair, Pan high back chair, Pan chair, Pan seating group 1, 2 and 3 seats, Timeout seating group, Twin chair.
The products are certified by Ecolabelling in Norway under license number 2031 0098.
mobelfakta.no is the brand name/logo/furniture brand that says that the manufacturer who uses it is environmentally certified and the furniture that carries it is environmentally declared/documented and quality certified.
An environmental declaration is a concise document that summarizes the environmental profile of a component, a finished product or a service in a standardized and objective way. The abbreviation EPD is used in both Norwegian and international contexts. EPD stands for Environmental Product Declaration. In our products' environmental declarations, which you will find on each individual product, the environmental impacts will be clearly stated. With the help of documentable and sober information, we want to appear as a responsible producer and supplier.
