ECOproduct logo

ECOproduct is a Norwegian method to choose environmentally friendly building materials and chemicals based on information in an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) or a safety data sheet. The method has been developed in collaboration with several building industry organizations and contractors in Norway.

Each product gets a character for Indoor Environment, Health and Environmental Hazardous Substances, Global Warming Potential and Resource Consumption. The environmental profile is presented visually in a simple manner by showing a green, white or a red symbol for the above mentioned areas (for chemicals; Health and Environmental Hazardous Substances only). The specific environmental data can also be studied more carefully at an expanded level, in addition to the actual EPD/Safety Data Sheet for every product.

ECOproduct database is operated by Norsk Byggtjeneste (Norwegian Building Centre)
