Refresh for UL Solutions ESG reporting software


UL Solutions presented the new look of its sustainability reporting solution, UL 360 Sustainability Essentials, an environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting tool. To provide the best user experience possible, the software went through a refresh to capture the latest thinking in user-focused design. UL 360 Sustainability Essentials has gained wide recognition for its functionality, including being named Top Product of the Year in the Environment+Energy Leader Awards 2021. The user interface and user experience (UI/UX) team took the occasion of the company’s rebranding from UL to UL Solutions as an opportunity to upgrade the software’s look and feel to offer customers a cohesive experience across all software in the UL Solutions ecosystem. An equally important goal of the redesign included making sure the software meets the latest accessibility standards and is as user-friendly as possible for people of all abilities. The team updated and consolidated over 500 icons, and individual function buttons were updated into toolbars, which makes the visual impact more consistent. The uniform placement of new dashboards and menus helps users navigate confidently from section to section.
