Whether a laboratory contains chemicals, computers or almost anything in between, there is something in the Green Labs Certification for just about everyone! This certification measures lab sustainability and provides guidance for improvement, and recognizes the hard work of OSU lab managers and workers. Green Labs Certification is open to all labs across OSU campuses throughout the state.
The goal of this certification is to raise awareness about sustainability options for labs and provide personalized feedback and resources to create a cleaner and greener research community.
The Resources and Tips page supports the survey itself and contains information and definitions used in the Certification.
The page includes FAQs, resources relating to the six categories, and other outside sources to provide everything you need to reduce your office footprint and fill out the survey!
The Green Labs Certification started as a senior thesis by Honors College student Sally Albright, Class of 2019. The Sustainability Office then adopted and implemented the certification, and administers it today. Read Sally's thesis here!
Sally also starred in a science podcast explaining the role of the Green Lab Certification in making OSU more sustainable. Check out the podcast below!
