The Swan Ecolabel
Linköping Konsert & Kongress
- One of Sweden’s three Swan Ecolabel day conference facilities
Linköping Konsert & Kongress has for a good number of years back actively worked with the environment in focus in order to create a welcoming meeting place which is good for both the guest and the environment. Therefore, in the year 2015, as the third day conference facilities in Sweden to receive the Swan-marking, we saw this as a good indication that our hard environmental work had produced results.
Linköping Konsert & Kongress has, among other things, increased the proportion of ecological and locally produced ingredients, and reviewed our waste disposal as well as our energy and water usage. Procurement has focused on eco-labelled goods and the facility has exchanged water bottles for water automats. The list can be long, but as a major meeting organiser in Sweden we see it principally as a responsibility to influence both suppliers and our visitors to be environmentally aware.
About the Swan
The Swan is the official Nordic eco-label, decided upon by the Nordic Council of Ministers more than 25 years ago. It is a voluntary, positive labelling of goods and services. The Swan makes it easy for the consumer to choose the best products from an environmental standpoint. The Swan is also a tool for companies who wish to show their environmental work and at the same time contribute to the development of sustainable production. Read more about the Swan here.
