To advance sustainable, efficient, and decarbonized laboratories around the world, I2SL depends on the involvement of a diverse array of professionals from the laboratory industry. I2SL has a number of volunteer opportunities for lab owners, operators, designers, engineers, sustainability managers, vendors, and suppliers to get involved.
Chapters: Join one of I2SL’s state, local, or regional chapters to help to expand the reach of I2SL’s work. I2SL chapters host local educational events and networking opportunities focused on regional lab topics. You can volunteer to serve in a leadership position on a chapter’s Board of Directors, host a local workshop, or run an event. If there’s not currently a chapter in your area, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to start a chapter.
Working Groups: Get involved with one of I2SL’s working groups focused on specific lab sustainability and efficiency issues. Working groups are composed of networks of professionals and convene to work towards goals that relate to the I2SL mission, including lab waste landfill diversion, energy benchmarking, and ventilation effectiveness.
Technical Advisory Councils (TACs): If you are interested in promoting lab decarbonization, volunteer to be a technical advisor on I2SL’s Labs2Zero program development. The TACs are essential to ensuring various aspects of the Labs2Zero program serve the community, including the Energy Score, Emissions Score, Lab Benchmarking Tool Enhancement, User Experience, and Assessments and Design Tools.
