Laboratories are often resource-intensive operations, with high energy demand and potential environmental impacts from equipment, consumables, chemicals and waste. Scientists are increasingly aware of the need to develop and adopt sustainable approaches to laboratory practices to drive down the environmental footprint of labs. This could include changes to lab design, procurement, energy and resource consumption, and waste disposal, as well as rethinking research design with carbon footprint and environmental impact in mind.
This hour-long interactive webinar is for laboratory professionals, researchers, facility managers, and sustainability enthusiasts looking to hear from experts and lab professionals who have successfully implemented sustainable practices in their laboratories.
During this webinar, we were joined by expert panellists who champion sustainability in their work. Over the course of the hour, they shared their insights, practical tips, and innovative solutions to address the unique sustainability challenges faced by laboratories. They also showcased practical knowledge from case studies and shared their experiences and success stories.
By watching the upcoming recording of this webinar you will:
