Event: Transforming Research Labs (Part II)

Transforming Research Labs (Part II)

Event
Tuesday, September 10, 2019
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
EST

Following up on Part I of this two–part series, this webinar will explore how to optimize laboratories through training and procurement. Part I spoke to the changes that can lead to more sustainable operations. Part II will address how training and smarter procurement choices can increase the impact of those changes in the laboratory.

My Green Lab, in partnership with the Federal Energy Management Program and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, has released a series of training videos around laboratory optimization. These videos cover energy, water, waste, and hazardous chemical use and may be used on their own or in conjunction with the Green Lab Certification program. My Green Lab has also recently launched an eco-label for laboratory products, called ACT. Created to provide information on the impact of laboratory products, the ACT label has been quietly revolutionizing the life science, industrial science, and healthcare industries.

Participants will learn how to use these new resources effectively as part of the Smart Labs Accelerator program.

Both health systems are also going beyond the target energy reduction and aim to reduce 30% by 2022 for UW Health and by 2025 for Mayo Clinic.
