McGill updates Sustainable Labs Guide to ensure more sustainable research operations


McGill University has launched an updated Sustainable Labs Guide to help its researchers and lab users implement greener practices in their work. The Guide provides about 75 suggestions across categories such as waste management, energy conservation, procurement, and animal research that researchers can implement. “This guide is the result of a collaborative effort between key stakeholders at McGill, including staff, students, and researchers,” said McGill Hazardous Waste Management unit manager Christian Bouchard. “We want to provide a tool for researchers where they can find several different ways to improve the sustainability of their lab with minimal effort, all in one place, and without distracting from the main goals of scientific research.”
