The ECOLOGO Certification Program was aquired by UL Environment, a division of UL (Underwriters Laboritories) in 2010. ECOLOGO Certification is based on multiattribute, life cycle–based standards. All products certified to an ECOLOGO standard must meet or exceed each of the listed criteria before receiving the mark. ECOLOGO Certification is classified as an ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Type 1 ecolabel and has been successfully assessed by the Global Ecolabeling Network, further demonstrating its credibility.
Since its establishment in 1988, ECOLOGO has been recognized or referenced in more than 350 specifications and standards, and UL Environment has public affairs and outreach teams dedicated to continuing to enhance market adoption.
