Why GreenLab?

Life sciences research requires many resources: Reagents, single-use consumables, energy for heating, cooling and computations, building space, conference travel. All these resources are associated with huge CO2 footprints. As scientists, we should be aware of these footprints and the damage that they cause to the world and try to find more sustainable solutions.
