GREENLABSUAB Green Labs is a new, voluntary program to help lab leaders implement efficiency measures to reduce environmental and economic costs without sacrificing research quality, safety standards or comfort and productivity of lab staff.

UAB Sustainability, in partnership with UAB Occupational Health and Safety, is offering a pilot program in 2016-17 that will institute sustainable practices and recognize participants for their efforts.

Learn how to become a Green Lab charter member during a luncheon 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Nov. 1 in SHPB Room 640. The lunch is free, but an RSVP is required.

UAB has nearly 2,000 labs, and small changes can translate to large economic savings and significant reductions in our environmental impact, says UAB Sustainability Coordinator Julie Price. This program provides generalized guidelines that apply to a multitude of facilities, and researchers may adapt and innovate practices based on their unique circumstances.
