Tikkurila’s Alcro-Beckers first to display "the Swan" label on exterior paints

Thursday, 11 June 2009

Alcro-Beckers is the first company to receive the Nordic Ecolabel known as "the Swan"

Alcro-Beckers AB is the first company to receive the Nordic Ecolabel known as "the Swan" for its exterior paints. Alcro-Beckers AB is part of the Finnish Tikkurila that is responsible for Kemira’s paints and coatings business. The company has decided to limit 99% of its paint selection exclusively to waterborne products by the end of 2010. The Nordic Ecolabel is the official environmental label of the Nordic countries. It sets strict requirements on the entire life-cycle of products, from raw materials to production and use, and finally to disposal of waste. For example, paint must not contain solvents or any chemical substances that disturb hormone systems. Heavy metals are also forbidden.
