Why is it that Scandinavian Business Seating does not bear
the European “Flower” Ecolabel?
Ecolabel has a wide range of products in its certification portfolio but has no group-certification for the task chair category. The label applies only to the use of wood and textiles in furniture. Companies pay a large amount of money to certify their products and can qualify for the European Ecolabel simply by using eco-friendly paper in their printers. Once they have qualified for the label, they can proudly display it on their websites, pretending that it also applies to their products. This is called “greenwashing” and is intended to deceive the customer. We choose to be completely open about all areas of our business, as they all affect the environment.
