UL Environment Multi-Attribute Certification

UL Environment Multi-Attribute Certification logo

Environmental Product Certifications tell the story of a product’s environmental performance throughout its lifecycle, enabling purchasers to identify holistically greener products and meet their sustainability goals. These voluntary, multi-attribute, lifecycle-based environmental certifications indicate that a product has undergone rigorous scientific testing, exhaustive auditing, or both, to prove its compliance with stringent, third-party, environmental performance standards. These standards set metrics for a wide variety of criteria, including: energy reduction, waste diversion, recyclability, salvaged material usage, site preservation, transportation reduction, and natural resource conservation. UL has created multi-attribute sustainability standards for the following industries: building materials/finished, janitorial/sanitation, household cleaning, toys, mobile phones and office supplies.
