Integrating Sustainable Design into the Lab Services Industry
1 May 2018
Sustainability and ethical practice has permeated the science industry, leading to a rise in sustainable lab design. Complementary lab services can help maximise the benefits of laboratories with an eco-friendly focus.
Lab services play an important role in the overall running of a research facility, scientific lab or hospital. Johnsons Laboratory Logistics listen to the needs of each organisation to learn about its focus and pressure points before developing a tailored service including eco-friendly solutions and fully compliant waste disposal methods.
Sustainable lab design promotes an ethical and eco-conscious approach to laboratory processes – from greener energy solutions and recycling programmes to water saving systems. As sustainability means different things to different people, the real outcomes expected from sustainable lab developments can be difficult to define and vary greatly.
Global appetite for more ethical practice, especially in the pharmaceutical sector, is growing year on year. A focus on more ‘green’ design and processing will benefit labs both financially and in terms of public opinion. Where green energy solutions are implemented, chemical waste is responsibly processed, managed and disposed of there are clear advantages for all.
