Mannverk has since its establishment, wanted to make the construction industry more environmentally friendly. It was therefore a great honour when the Enviroment Agency gave Mannverk the Nordic Swan Ecolabel for the construction of Brekkugata Street 2 in Garðabær. This is the first environmentally friendly house build in Iceland and as a Nordic Swan Ecolabel certificate holder, Mannverk is proud to have paved the way for the construction of more eco-friendly houses in Iceland.

The official ecolabel have requirements during the entire building process, from the felling of trees to when waste is recycled. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel imposes stringent requirements on, for example: Materials, Good ventilation, The building process, Energy-efficiency and Good indoor climate.
