UL launches integrated EHS and sustainability solution

by Brianna Crandall — March 17, 2017 — UL Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Sustainability division recently announced the launch of the PURE Platform — said to be the industry’s first integrated EHS and Sustainability software solution designed to drive business performance. The suite of solutions transforms traditional data collection into meaningful and actionable insights to give customers real-time access to an integrated, 360-degree view of EHS, sustainability, and supply chain information across their organization, says UL.

The launch follows UL’s 2016 acquisition of cr360, a provider of environment, health and safety management, and sustainability software. The PURE Platform combines cr360’s proven track record in software solutions innovation with UL’s EHS and sustainability expertise, grounded in science to create a safer world. With this launch, cr360 is now fully consolidated with UL’s EHS division, creating a single combined and unified platform that includes a number of new functionalities.

Mark Ward, general manager of UL EHS Sustainability, stated:

Our PURE Platform aims to provide our clients with total connectivity and visibility into the overall health, safety, and sustainability of their organization. It is the most intuitive, flexible, and powerful solution on the market.

The integrated PURE Platform offers a number of new capabilities for organizations looking to protect their people, manage their operational risk, and drive business performance, including:

  • New iOS and Windows apps: These native apps empower users to leverage mobility to log information when offline and automatically sync when back online.
  • Compliance Management: A module for organizations to manage their compliance to EHS regulations and policies with compliance registers and monitoring.
  • Integrations with third-party supplier assessment/certification systems: Enables businesses to transfer information between platforms in order to streamline data sources, maintain consistency across datasets, and enhance data integrity.
  • Audits Scheduling: Create and manage a schedule of audits to be completed to enhance program planning and execution.
