ST. LOUIS (April 17, 2015) –UniGroup, parent company of United Van Lines and other relocation and logistics subsidiaries, achieved the ISO 14001:2004 environmental systems (EMS) certification. The certification was awarded following a comprehensive audit completed April 6-10.

“We are very proud of achieving the ISO 14001 certification. We feel it is an important step we can take as an organization to show customers and the community UniGroup’s continued commitment to providing quality services in an environmentally responsible manner,” said Rebecca Peterson, director of corporate responsibility and sustainability.
