The Amazon Smart Thermostat is the first Amazon device to obtain an ECOLOGO® Silver Certification from UL, the global authority in safety science. ECOLOGO® Certified goods fulfil requirements that indicate a decreased environmental effect throughout one or more phases of the product life cycle and provide reliable, third-party certification for the reduced environmental impact of products and services.
If a product earns an ECOLOGO® Silver Certification, it has undergone third-party auditing and verification of stringent, science-based performance criteria. ECOLOGO® Certification for Amazon Smart Thermostat demonstrates the company’s commitment to a sustainable future through its Climate Pledge Friendly program.
“By using the ECOLOGO® mark, companies like Amazon can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and a cleaner environment through a credible, third-party review and verification by one of the world’s most trusted Eco labeling program,” said Doug Lockard, vice president and general manager of UL’s Retail and Consumer Products group. “Ecolabels like ECOLOGO® Certification, UL GREENGUARD Certification, and Environmental Claim Validation can assist customers in making educated purchase decisions and selecting goods with the necessary environmental and sustainability features.”
Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly program highlights products certified by one or more trusted third-party sustainability certifications or Amazon’s Compact by Design certification, which helps preserve the natural world.
