Industry and academic labs are energy-intensive, high waste–producing workspaces. To improve the ecological footprint of biomedical research, best practices are being developed to reduce energy and water usage, and to reduce the amount of hazardous waste produced. Join us for this event to learn how you can improve lab sustainability, reducing the environmental footprint of your research.

Topics to be covered:

  • Lab assessments: identifying the key components of a safe, sustainable laboratory
  • Efficient management of cold storage
  • Smart choices: Lab recycling and chemical substitutions
  • Energy management: Fume hoods and biosafety cabinets

Meet the Speakers:
