Schneider Electric Receives UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air at Dallas Site
- The company’s recently renovated Dallas office site has been verified by UL to meet various indoor air quality (IAQ) guidelines and standards
- The verification aligns with the company’s goal of creating healthy, people-centric spaces
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, is proud to announce that its Dallas site has achieved the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air, demonstrating that the company’s indoor spaces have been evaluated by a third-party service provider to help ensure a healthy environment for the site’s occupants. The site has recently undergone a major renovation, with sustainability goals and initiatives at the forefront, and this verification recognizes the company’s ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of employees and visitors.
As one of the most respected names in safety, security and sustainability for buildings, UL’s Verified Healthy Building program is designed to help building owners demonstrate their commitment to a healthier environment for occupants in up to five areas, including IAQ. To achieve UL verification, the facility must go through a rigorous evaluation and testing period comprised of on-site, quantitative measurements, visual inspections and review of existing plans or policies. The site will be assessed using bi-annual on-site inspections to maintain compliant IAQ, and such inspections may include data from indoor air quality sensors for continual monitoring of quantitative metrics.
“Creating healthy and sustainable buildings is in our DNA,” said James Mylett, Vice President, US Digital Buildings at Schneider Electric. “We’ve made the same commitment to fostering healthy spaces for our employees at our office sites that we provide for our customers. This verification from UL recognizes our dedication to improving the quality of buildings that our teams work and collaborate in every day.”
The UL Verification serves as a science-based credential by an independent party fostering the occupants’ trust in the company’s brand. “Schneider Electric is clearly going the extra mile to give their employees the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are working in a healthier environment,” said Sean McCready, Director, Asset and Sustainability, Real Estate and Properties at UL, “As workers start returning to physical office buildings, it is essential that companies everywhere take the necessary measures to earn the trust of their employees, and we’re excited to continue recognizing leaders in the IAQ space like Schneider Electric.”
The growing need for healthy and resilient buildings has prompted many companies to reconsider their practices around fundamental building aspects such as indoor air, water, hygiene and other indoor environmental quality factors. Schneider Electric was recognized as the World’s most sustainable corporation in 2021 by Corporate Knights and continues to advance its efforts to promote safer, healthier, more people-centric spaces by partnering with UL and utilizing its comprehensive range of solutions.
