The Swan ecolabel
Fujitsu Siemens Computers LIFEBOOK C1410 is the fist laptop in the world achieving the Swan Ecolabel. The criteria for a ecolabel from the Swan for pc focus on power consumption, plastics and their additives, heavy metals, recycling of discarded products, noise levels etc. You can read more about the criteria on: and more about the laptop at .

In 1989, the Nordic Council of Ministers decided to introduce a common, official environmental label in Nordic. The Swan was chosen as a symbol, a variation on the logo of the Nordic Council of Ministers. I thought actually there already were some laptops which had achieved the Swan label.
