Green Labs Program

At UBC, we are committed to advancing sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of the research footprint.

With over 400 labs across campus, UBC’s research activities require a significant amount of energy, water and materials. In fact, campus buildings with labs consume the most energy and water and generate the most hazardous waste.

The Green Labs Program empowers the research community to reduce the environmental impact of research-related activities by providing environmental best practices and sustainable solutions.

Green Labs is led collaboratively by Campus + Community Planning, Energy and Water Services, Financial Operations, and Risk Management Services at both the Vancouver and Okanagan campus.
