About My Green Lab
My Green Lab is not-for-profit organization that is fundamentally and permanently improving the sustainability of scientific research. Run “for scientists, by scientists,” My Green Lab leverages their credibility and track record to develop standards, oversee their implementation, and inspire the many behavioral changes that are needed throughout the scientific community.
My Green Lab’s mission is to build a culture of sustainability through science. Their Green Lab Certification Program is the cornerstone of this mission, educating and engaging scientists on laboratory sustainability best practices so they can become active contributors in minimizing the environmental impact of their laboratory operations. My Green Lab’s Certification is considered the global standard for laboratory sustainability best practices. They have certified hundreds of labs in a variety of sectors and through this process have seen people make real and impactful changes across their laboratories.
My Green Lab’s work has been featured in Science, Nature, Women in Science, Medium, and Sustainable Brands. Their efforts have been celebrated by the Department of Human Health and Services, the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council, and the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL).
