UL Acquires TerraChoice in Green Standard Consolidation
ULC Standards, a unit of Underwriters Laboratories has acquired TerraChoice, a green marketing consultancy and the managers of Canada’s EcoLogo program. While the acquisition was conducted by ULC Standards, the move serves to bring TerraChoice together with UL Environment (ULE) for a partnership that will expand and enhance both groups’ capacities and reach.
"TerraChoice will be able to work with UL Environment to bring its standards and programs into the U.S., and ULE will bring its programs to a broader audience in Canada," explained Stephen Wenc, President and Managing Director of ULE. He added, "It’s a wonderful complement to the work we’re doing with ULE in areas like building materials, appliances and consumer electronics."
