Third-Party Certifications


EcoLogo
ECOLOGO

ECOLOGO is North America's largest, most respected life cycle-based environmental standard and certification. ECOLOGO Certified products, services and packaging are certified for reduced environmental impact. ECOLOGO Certifications are voluntary, multi-attribute, life cycle-based environmental certifications that indicate a product has undergone rigorous scientific testing, exhaustive auditing, or both, to prove its compliance with stringent, third-party, environmental performance standards.

For the U.S. markets, we created PURELL® Green Certified Instant Hand Sanitizer and GOJO® Green Certified Foam and Lotion Hand Cleaners to meet the standards of ECOLOGO to become the world's first, and now largest, green certified instant hand sanitizer and foam soap portfolio.
