UBC Green Labs is currently piloting the My Green Lab Certification with a number of UBC lab groups. We are not currently accepting new participating groups.
More about the certification program
The My Green Lab Certification is considered the gold standard for laboratory sustainability best practices around the world and is recognized by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign as a key measure of progress towards a zero-carbon future. To date, My Green Lab has supported over 1000 labs in a range of sectors, helping them to save money and preserve resources while ensuring a safe, healthy, and fun environment in support of your science.
Whether you are a lab manager, graduate student, postdoc, scientist, energy manager, or anyone else who works in or supports labs, the My Green Lab Certification program can help on your journey towards a more sustainable laboratory. The recommendations provided through certification encourage the adoption of specific behaviours and tasks scientists can do themselves to improve their lab's environmental performance. The program also provides recommendations for more extensive changes to the space or maintenance of equipment that can significantly impact sustainability parameters.
