European Eco Label accredited

Caring for the environment has never been more important. That’s why here at Northwood, we take a sustainable approach to every aspect of our business. Our Essentials products have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal.

Our Essentials range is a leading environmentally friendly brand in the tissue market and is European Eco Label accredited. Recognised throughout Europe, the EU Ecolabel is a voluntary label promoting environmental excellence which can be trusted. Backed by all EU Member States and the European Commission, it is Europe and the UK’s official environmental label.

First conceived in 1992 and easily recognisable by its flower logo, Ecolabel, a prestigious Europe-wide accreditation renowned for its robust and trusted certification process, uses strict environmental criteria to distinguish environmentally-friendly products. The assessment process tracks the product throughout its lifecycle; from the sourcing of raw materials through to post production transportation and final disposal of the product.

Only when the whole life cycle of the paper has been assessed, measured and monitored is the Ecolabel awarded, allowing the consumer to easily identify products that are cleaner and greener for their business.

The award of Ecolabel accreditation reflects Essentials forward-thinking approach to the wider environment and the importance of protecting our natural surroundings.
