To stay competitive in today’s global marketplace, all companies must address sustainability. With pressure from regulators, investors and customers to make the world greener, take action now to reduce the effects of climate change, create more circular products and provide more transparency into your supply chain and its social impact.
Whether you’re working with UL on a product certification, marketing claim verification or specialized inspection, here are five ways you can make more sustainable choices as a customer.
1. Digitize your invoices
Every day, companies face choices that can impact the environment. Making the greener choice — like electing to receive your invoices digitally instead of printed on paper — results in fewer emissions from printing and mailing your regular billing communications. To switch to digital invoices, contact our customer team.
2. Engage virtually
Choosing to have virtual meetings rather than in-person events removes the carbon impact you generate when you travel and minimizes costs to your organization. UL can also conduct inspections virtually. For more information on taking your fieldwork virtual, contact your field engineer.
3. Take advantage of digital tools
Digital tools like UL Product iQTM and the myUL® Client Portal can provide many business advantages. Product iQ replaces the need for an outdated, physical listing of certification information. myUL is a digital platform that houses everything from inspection reports to invoices and other important documents, removing the need to maintain printed physical copies.
4. Carbon footprint management
Managing your carbon footprint, or the total amount of greenhouse gas you generate, can provide a huge benefit to your organization. Whether it’s to increase your appeal to investors or to help keep operating costs down through investments in LED lighting, shrinking your carbon footprint can mean measurable growth for your bottom line. Once you decide to take this step, software like Turbo Carbon™ empowers you to provide reporting to your stakeholders in a simple, efficient and cost-effective manner.
