BMC Green Lab Initiative

What do we do?

We research, discuss, propose and enforce actions and policies to reduce our environmental footprint in the lab, and to make our research more sustainable, such as:


  • Gloves
  • Single-use plasticware


  • Tubes (for culturing Drosophila, bacteria etc.)
  • Staining solutions and buffers


  • Waste separation improvement (recycling bins available in each room)
  • Pipette tip boxes

Raise awareness

  • SAM (sustainable action of the month)
  • Stickers as reminders, for example to switch off devices

For more information on SAMs and tips on how to start a Green Lab Initiative, see here (1 MByte).
