Overview

We can help you differentiate your products in an increasingly greenwashed world. Our trusted reputation lends enhanced legitimacy to sustainable product messaging with product certifications and validations that clearly communicate these attributes to the marketplace.

Purchasers are becoming more and more aware that independent, third-party certification based on stringent standards and requirements helps deliver truthful and credible green messaging. We can provide you with the reliable scientific evidence — including testing results, analysis, research and studies — that is necessary to support your environmental product claims.

Benefits

UL’s Environmental claim validations lend third-party credibility to your single-attribute environmental claims, such as usage of recycled content and recyclability. Our multiattribute sustainability certifications, which include our highly reputable ECOLOGO® certification, indicate your product’s compliance with stringent environmental performance criteria throughout its life cycle, including energy reduction, materials, health, environment, and manufacturing and operations. This gives purchasers and consumers a robust view of your product’s sustainable attributes.

Even more so, UL’s GREENGUARD Certification provides you with a competitive advantage by serving as a health-focused differentiator. Products that earn GREENGUARD Certification have been scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third-party chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure.

Not only can these certifications help you stand out from the crowd, they can also showcase your sustainability efforts at a consumer level — helping you become a true market leader in environmental stewardship.

Why UL

UL’s GREENGUARD and ECOLOGO® certifications are recognized and referenced in numerous building programs, standards and specifications around the world. Once your products are certified by us, they can contribute to the achievement of points for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® rating system as well as many other green building rating systems, code or ordinance criteria, and specific request for proposal (RFP) requirements. Essentially, these certifications help demonstrate the values of your organization – that you care about your consumers and are committed to making safer and healthier products.
