CONGRESS 2023 - Making Science Sustainable – Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework (LEAF) and Clinical Laboratories

Nations, institutions, and now the NHS have made net-zero commitments, but how will this affect scientific operations, and what would net-zero science look like? Laboratories are recognising their energy intensive nature, and assessing their immense consumption of consumables. More green lab efforts are growing around the world, though more standards are needed. This talk will include: An introduction to sustainable and green labs A look at what net-zero laboratories might resemble in the future An introduction to Sustainability standards, and what programmes are developing regarding the sustainability of clinical, research, and all kinds of labs Questions!
