We’re increasingly aware of the need to do our bit in the fight against the climate emergency, at home as well as in the lab. Knowing where to start can be a challenge and it can seem overwhelming, especially in the lab where single-use plastics and energy-hungry equipment have been the norm for many years. But organisations like My Green Lab are here to help us become more sustainable for a cleaner, greener future.
We take sustainability seriously at CoolLED, which is why we signed our popular pE-300 Series LED Illumination Systems for fluorescence microscopy up to the My Green Lab ACT Label. This stands for Accountability, Consistency and Transparency, and is essentially an “eco-nutrition label” for lab products, providing a score based on the environmental impact of manufacturing, using, and disposing of a product and its packaging.
When it’s time to purchase a new piece of equipment, comparing lab products using the ACT Label is a valuable tool to ensure you are making the most sustainable decision.
The pE-300 Series has been ACT Label certified since 2018, and we’re excited to announce that three key improvements we have made to reduce our impact has resulted in a reduced environmental impact score. Our new ACT score has now reduced from 47.2 to 38.2, helping labs to become more sustainable in 2021!
