With Indoor Air Quality identified as a risk to public health, UL is advancing new testing methods, new insights and new equipment that are helping minimize indoor air pollution and reduce exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. We innovate ways to measure chemical and particulate emissions from products used in indoor environments, supporting manufacturers in the development of healthier products. We have also developed a unique methodology to examine and certify the air quality to enhance green buildings. To help safeguard people and places, we work at creating new testing methods & tools, providing the information manufacturers, consumers and built environment professionals need to mitigate risk and maintain healthier, more sustainable indoor spaces.
We have also established a Sustainable Product Guide to find thousands of UL GREENGUARD Certified products, which have been certified for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage.
