impact and make sustainable choices by offering, producing
and developing sustainable communications products and ser-
vices. Our goal is also to reshape the entire communication
sector in a more environmentally responsible direction. To
reduce their environmental impact, companies must choose
the right materials and production methods. Environmental
labels and chain of custody (CoC) certificates can be used
to communicate messages about companies’ environmental
responsibility. We recommend they use internationally recog-
nized labels to indicate that their products have a lower envi-
ronmental impact than comparable ones.
The Nordic Ecolabel
The Nordic Ecolabel on a printed product indicates that the
environmental impact has been considered throughout the
production chain, from paper manufacturing to the delivery of
the finished printed product. The label sets standards for for-
est management, pulp and paper manufacturing, printing and
waste management. Both the materials and the production
process must comply with the agreed criteria. Edita’s main pro-
duction plants have been granted the right to use the Nordic
Ecolabel. The Group’s net revenue from Nordic Ecolabelled
products was about eur 2.6 million in 2011.

Forests are essential, renewable resources that cannot be taken

aged according to agreed criteria and the wood fiber used is
monitored from forest to finished product. Forest manage-
ment criteria relate to compliance with national legislation and
