Green Endeavor Inc. and UL Environment Inc. Team-up to Bring Safer Solutions to Industry
Green Endeavor Inc. (GEI), the global leader in environmentally focused solutions for industry, and UL Environment Inc. __title__ UL Environment (UL) have announced that the two companies will engage in a cooperative collaboration. UL Environment, based in Marietta, GA, is engaged in the business of setting standards and testing, inspecting and certifying products, goods and services all in connection with reducing impact on human health and the environment. This engagement is believed to be the first of its kind, focusing solely on ‘greening’ industrial cleaning.
“This is an enormous opportunity for Green Endeavor and UL Environment to pool our resources and expertise to help industry understand and adopt eco-focused solutions to reduce the negative environmental and health-related impacts of certain industrial cleaners. Our efforts we will increase the number, availability, coherence and quality of industrial cleaners in the marketplace that are known to be safer and healthier for the environment and the workforce that also make economic sense,” said B. Scott Taylor, CEO of Green Endeavor Inc.
UL Environment will provide a certification process providing standards and validation for GEI solutions, giving industry the assurance that the products are subject to testing against rigorous standards and are viable alternatives to the chemical solutions currently being employed. Switching to cleaner, safer, eco-focused solutions will help industry comply with state and federal environmental regulations, and improve the impact their processes have on the environment. The use of these new solutions will be less harmful to the workforce and will ultimately provide significant cost savings.
“We are very excited to partner with Green Endeavor to help improve health and sustainability in the industrial cleaning space,” said Mark Rossolo, Manager of Government & Public Affairs at UL Environment. “This is an area which has been long overlooked in the push to increase green cleaning products in general, and we think this is a great opportunity to quickly make a difference and begin to reduce the environmental and health impacts of industrial cleaning.”
For the past three years Green Endeavor has provided solutions to a broad range of industrial leaders in a number of markets including agriculture, automotive, food and beverage, and transportation. Among the companies who have realized the benefits of using GEI products and services are Parker Hannifin Corporation; Hillsboro Aviation; Kellogg's; The Long Company; Wedgworth's; Capstone Turbine; Ponzi Wines; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology .
