It is important as a supplier to the construction industry to take its share of environmental responsibility. With solutions from Dana Lim, the Nordic region’s largest supplier of glue, putty and sealant, you can obtain more than a third of the points required for a Nordic Ecolabelled building. This makes it easier for you to make environmentally friendly and correct choices for your next building project.
Just like other certifications, the Nordic Ecolabel also works with the distribution of points based on which solutions are chosen. If a building is to be Swan Ecolabelled, it requires achieving at least 17 out of 44 possible points.
How do you get this?
The system is built simply. By choosing the right building materials, you can get up to 10 points. If you choose to build with materials that have been marked with the Nordic Ecolabel or the EU Ecolabel, you are already more than halfway there.
An easy shortcut to points
The building materials are divided into specific product categories (chemical products, windows & doors, indoor paint & varnish, outdoor paint & varnish, acoustic ceilings, etc.) and you can easily earn points. Rune Ludvigsen, Country Manager at Dana Lim Norway, explains:
– If at least 10% of the product requirements in the relevant category are covered by eco-labelled products, you get 1 point. If at least 50% of the product requirements in the relevant category are covered by eco-labelled products, you get 3 points.
By choosing at least 50% eco-labelled building materials in three categories, as well as at least 10% eco-labelled building materials in a fourth category, you achieve a maximum of 10 points for building materials.
Easy for the user to choose environmentally friendly
Rune Ludvigsen says that it is important to take part in the fight for a greener and more sustainable construction industry. And therefore it is important as a supplier to make it easy for the user to choose environmentally friendly:
– At Dana Lim, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to choose the right solutions from the start. That is why we have developed both glue and putty which are Swan Ecolabelled. This is how you can achieve 6 points with products from Dana Lim alone. Thus, you only need 4 points to finish your building materials.
At the same time, you can have many Dana Lim products that are registered in Ecolabel’s database included in Swan Ecolabelled buildings. This makes it easier for you to choose the solutions you need to get the best starting point.
