Address market challenges with eco label certification

Retailers and brand owners recognize the unprecedented urgency to address the climate crisis. They want to demonstrate to buyers their commitment to sustainability with credible product certifications that enhance transparency. Certification marks often focus on a single attribute rather than multi-attribute requirements evaluating a product’s environmental and health impact.

For manufacturers and retailers that want to showcase that their products meet a comprehensive set of environmental, health and social criteria, the ECOLOGO® Certification program can help.

Trust and transparency

A growing number of so-called “ecolabels” have made it difficult to differentiate between products or suppliers that are genuinely environmentally preferable. Customers need to see demonstrated credibility on sustainable product attributes, which can help companies avoid accusations of greenwashing. Here’s how UL Solutions helps customers determine which companies stand out in that crowd.

ECOLOGO® Certification demonstrates overall product sustainability

UL ECOLOGO® Certification is based on multi-attribute, lifecycle-based sustainability standards. All products certified under the ECOLOGO® program must meet or exceed each of the listed criteria of these specific standards before receiving the ECOLOGO® Mark. ECOLOGO® Certification is classified as an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Type 1 ecolabel and has been successfully assessed by the Global Ecolabeling Network, further demonstrating its credibility.

ECOLOGO Standards offer environmental leadership and scientifically-developed environmental sustainability criteria reviewed and robustly vetted by multiple stakeholders. They consider attributes such as corporate practices, resource use, human and environmental health, packaging, labeling, performance and manufacturing as part of the overall environmental and health impact of a product.
