Webinar: Guidance for the Sustainable Procurement of Laboratory Supplies
November 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
Laboratories often represent a “hot spot” within organizations for environmental waste, toxins, and even supply chain labor issues. Until now, comprehensive guidance wasn’t available for purchasers seeking to address these issues. That’s why the SPLC, in partnership with My Green Labs, convened a multi-stakeholder Action Team to develop prioritized strategies and align them with supporting tools and resources for those seeking to take action in this area.
In this webinar, participants will learn more about the environmental and social impacts of purchasing laboratory supplies such as equipment, consumables, and chemicals; and get a glimpse of how teams can leverage the SPLC’s new procurement guidance to address these impacts from both a systems- and product-level perspective.
