Green Labs Recognition Program

April 21, 2024

Environmental Health and Safety, in partnership with the Dean for Research and the Office of Sustainability, is developing a green labs certification program to recognize excellence and raise awareness for sustainable adjustments in operations, procurement and waste management. 

The effort, part of the EVP's Sustainability Pilot Initiative, will kick off in 2024 with the development of a tiered certification program for Principal Investigators to assess their lab’s operations against key sustainability markers.

Labs successfully meeting these markers will be recognized with awards and other incentives. Stay tuned for more to come on this exciting program!

The program will build on information and themes highlighted on the EHS website, including sustainable research practices, energy and resource management and waste minimization.
