Bra Miljöval is a Swedish ecolabel established in 2002 and managed by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (Svenska Naturskyddsföreningen).
In 2020, more than 10,000 GWh of electricity labeled with Bra Miljöval are sold in Sweden, which involved 150 Swedish energy companies, of which 55 were permitted to sell Bra Miljöval to power users.
The goal is to reduce the negative impact of renewable electricity production on the environment and improve energy efficiency to reduce energy use.
