From reducing single use plastics to advice on how to save energy and water, this session will provide tips for laboratory users on how to improve the sustainability of laboratories and technical workspaces, and explain why it’s so important we manage our laboratories sustainably. We’ll also hear about how to best manage our ultralow freezers.
