Svanemærket –The Nordic Swan Ecolabel

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is your guarantee that the impact of printed matter on the environment is minimal. Our ISO 14001 certification combined with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel ensures that full control is maintained over individual products and the company’s overall environmental impact.


The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) aims to promote environmentally-conscious and socially and economically responsible forestry. FSC labelling is awarded where materials consumption for printed matter contributes to well-managed, environmentally friendly forestry practices.

In 2000, Stibo became the world’s first FSC-certified heatset printing company.


PEFC, the Pan-European Forest Certification Project, is the forestry industry’s own certification system. It aims to promote environmentally, socially and economically responsible forestry. PEFC is a traceability certification that allows PEFC-certified printed matter to be traced throughout the processing chain, from the forest to the consumer.

Stibo was first PEFC-certified in 2010.

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an environmental management system that implies systematic efforts to reduce the environmental impact of a company. All employees are involved in this environmental management system, and everyone is obliged to follow the procedures of the system. Our ISO 14001 system takes account of the external environment as well as the internal work environment of the company.

Stibo received ISO 14001 certification for the first time in 1997.

Carbon emissions compensation

Stibo was the first Danish printer to gain certification allowing it to use the ClimateCalc tool, which calculates the carbon footprint of printed matter. This means we can offer a precise calculation of the carbon footprint of an individual print job and offer to offset this by purchasing carbon credits. It is your opportunity to minimise environmental impact and to signal to your target group that your company is environmentally aware.
