The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) and UL Environment (ULE) Form Educational Partnership

BOISE, ID — The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) and Marietta GA-based UL Environment (ULE) have formed an educational partnership to help spread the word about healthier environments – indoors and out.
“We are pleased to support the efforts of this global powerhouse, and are enthused to assist in making ULE’s expertise in indoor air quality certification and testing better known to our partners and media contacts,” said Allen P. Rathey, Founder and President, the Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI). “We are further committed to sharing info about ULE’s training courses on green operations, sustainability and other vital issues.”
As part of the partnership, HFI will include select content from ULE provided by UL and a link back to ULE’s site on the HFI site.
“As demand for environmentally sustainable products and processes has grown, so has the need to have environmental claims validated and, when possible, certified to strong sustainability standards. UL Environment was launched in response to this need and we appreciate the support of The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) in educating the marketplace,” said Paul Bates, LEED-ap BD&C, Market Outreach Manager for ULE.
