Bio-based content refers to materials that are derived in whole or in part from biomass resources. Our team of experts uses rigorous test methods to help validate your product’s bio-based content. Examples of bio-based content include polylactic acid (PLA) and crop and wood residues.
Once your product receives validation, it can display UL’s Environmental Claim Validation (ECV) badge. This badge enables you to confidently showcase your sustainability efforts at a consumer level — giving you a distinct advantage over competitors.
Additionally, bio-based content speaks to the efficiency and integrity of your supply chain as well as your commitment to environmental stewardship. These two features of a sustainably developed product can set you apart in an oversaturated, ambiguously green marketplace.
We can test the following for bio-based content:
- Building materials
- Juvenile products
As one of the world’s most trusted names in third-party product validation, UL can help you gain instant credibility in a competitive, green marketplace. Credibility means that consumers can trust that your products are as eco-friendly as you say they are. In a landscape that is flooded with unsubstantiated sustainability claims, that’s a big deal.
Even more so, our services can give you the knowledge and resources needed to transform your environmental stewardship efforts into true market leadership. You’ll be empowered to create better products in a more environmentally responsible way, while simultaneously enabling your customers to make smarter, more environmentally preferable purchasing decisions.
