At the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine we recognise the value of laboratories in perpetuating world class research, however labs can have some negative operational impacts. Particularly, they are often attributed to high energy and water consumption (up to 10x more energy per square meter than non-laboratory areas), as well as hazardous and non-hazardous waste generation compared to other sites across the Bloomsbury Colleges.

 

Working with operational and academic partners we are committed to improving sustainability practises across all laboratories, which in turn will create safer working environments, and increased operational efficiency.

 

Collectively across labs there are opportunities to have an overarching positive impact on the environment, economy and society.
