…because we care

At Abena, the words “environmental concern” inspire action, not just words. It is one of the main areas of focus in our strategy and a value firmly rooted in our ethos – as well as in our logo. Therefore it is as natural to us as the very environment itself to back up our concerns by official certification, such as the Nordic eco label “Swan” as well as the international ISO 14001 certificate. Concern for nature goes hand in hand with the caring nature of Abena products.

We even have a specific range of products, both incontinence and baby nappies, with an official environmental accreditation. We are the only manufacturer in the world to hold the Nordic Swan eco label (one of only three official environmental labels, and the only one with criteria for incontinence products) for a number of our products. By choosing the Abena Nature series, you receive the same renowned Abena performance as in our standard products, but you can also contribute positively to the environment as well. The Swan label is your guarantee that a product has less impact on the environment than a similar non-labelled product.

At Abena we recognise our environmental responsibility…. because we care.

The Nordic eco label “Swan” is controlled by an official independent third party, whose requirements include:

  • Allergy-tested raw material with no PVC, perfume, lotion or optical
    whitener in the products
  • A minimum level of renewable plastics
  • A maximum limit for production waste
  • Datasheets for all oils, lubricants, janitorial, printing colour etc.
