We advance the recognition of sustainable products and drive purchaser clarity by bringing trusted transparency to the green marketplace.

The benefits of working with UL
We reinforce credibility of sustainable product claims through our robust certification, validation and testing services, helping our customers support their sustainability stories in ways that are meaningful to—and differentiating for—their organizations and their target markets.
This is increasingly valuable as demand for healthier, more sustainable products has grown. In fact, 65% of consumers globally agree or strongly agree that they would purchase more environmentally responsible products if the companies’ health and environmental claims were more believable. As a recognized industry leader committed to global sustainability, environmental health and safety, we can help provide that assurance.
Around the world, we help companies evolve, execute and communicate their sustainability strategies and initiatives with advisory services and expertise that supports the decision-making process every step of the way, including market research and strategy development.
UL introduced Wellness Certification for products, the first certification program that helps demonstrate a product’s contribution to requirements for wellness building standards, such as Fitwel. Products that are UL Wellness Certified are evaluated for criteria including product emissions, ergonomics and chemical and material transparency.
Additionally, UL’s GREENGUARD and ECOLOGO® marks are recognized and referenced in more than 900 sustainable product specifications and purchasing guidelines. Our customers can leverage our trusted global reputation for rigorous testing and scientific accuracy to more effectively communicate their own integrity and environmental leadership.
UL is the exclusive provider of GREENGUARD Certification for products that meet stringent chemical emissions requirements, and ECOLOGO Certification for products that meet multi-attribute, life cycle-based sustainability standards. We also offer single-attribute environmental claims validations, waste to landfill validation, Environmental Product Declarations and organizational sustainability certifications. IN Google+
