Eco-Lighthouse (Miljøfyrtårn) is Norway’s most widely used certification scheme for businesses and events seeking to document their environmental efforts and demonstrate social responsibility.
Companies or events wanting to become an Eco-Lighthouse undergo a certification process lasting between 3 and 6 months. In collaboration with an authorized Eco-Lighthouse consultant, the company establishes an internal environmental group and completes an internal environmental analysis.
This analysis starts out by looking at the company’s environmental impact in the areas of energy, waste, transport, purchasing and work environment. An action plan, with measures to be implemented in the company’s daily business, needs to be in place in order to be awarded environmental certification.
When these measures have been implemented and the company fulfills branch requirements, an independent assessor approves the company or event as an Eco-Lighthouse.The Eco-Lighthouse certificate is valid for three years before it must be renewed through a re-certification.
