Labs2Zero Pilots Energy Score
To help address the outsized impact laboratories have on carbon emissions, I2SL launched the Labs2Zero program as a roadmap to decarbonize the world’s high-tech research facilities. The first component of the program, a Pilot Energy Score for labs based on the I2SL Laboratory Benchmarking Tool, will launch in time for the Annual Conference.

I2SL Recognizes Projects, Programs, and People
The Sustainable Laboratories Award Program recognizes sustainable lab leaders, innovation, and best practices in three different categories: Lab Buildings or Projects, Lab Programs or Initiatives, and the Phil Wirdzek Leadership award. On October 24, I2SL recognized one individual and 15 projects and programs that demonstrated commitment to sustainable, efficient, and decarbonized laboratories.
Join the Community of Practice
To facilitate conversations among lab professionals and suppliers that help reduce the waste and toxicity associated with research products and packaging, the I2SL has launched the Circular Economy for Laboratories Community of Practice. These topics will be addressed in this community through an online forum, webinars, roundtables, blogs, videos, and library of resources. Join the community today!
