UL Greenguard


UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is a global independent safety science company founded in 1894.  UL certifies, tests, inspects, audits, advises and educates the market in collaboration with a variety of industry stakeholders who share the vision of promoting safe living and working environments.  

UL GREENGUARD has been establishing indoor air quality standards for indoor products, environments and buildings since 2001, and certifies products which have met stringent chemical emission requirements.

A professional in the cleaning industry can choose to utilize the UL GREENGUARD product certification standards to specify and source third-party certified products which have a more environmentally preferable profile.  UL GREENGUARD-Certified green cleaning products in the cleaning and maintenance product category (UL 2820) can potentially help a facility reach its overall sustainability goals.
