Verify the health of your buildings and develop trust with building occupants

People are searching for peace of mind when it comes to the health and wellness inside buildings. The UL Verified Healthy Buildings Program helps enable building owners to communicate their commitment to maintaining healthy buildings.

UL aligns our program criteria with programs like Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) and Fitwel. The UL Verified Healthy Buildings Mark helps enable building owners to report their efforts to a growing contingent of stakeholders, including investors, tenants, government agencies and consumers.
