My Green Lab has developed the first-ever eco-label for lab products, called ACT, which provides consistent, comprehensive, and easily understandable information that laboratories can use to assess – and ultimately reduce – the environmental impact of the products they use. The ACT label has been integrated into the Living Building Challenge Requirements for laboratory spaces and is now used by laboratories and Life Science procurement professionals to ensure healthy, efficient products in the laboratory market. Join us to gain a deeper understanding of how the ACT label is transforming the supply chain for laboratory equipment and materials and how you can leverage these tools to improve your own lab or laboratory projects.
Two AIA credits or Continuing Educational Units available.
