Sustainable Labs Canada is a volunteer organization of Canadians interested in ensuring that we have sustainable labs in our communities. Our group includes members from the public and private sectors with representation from: academic, hospital and national labs; facility representatives; sustainability experts; design teams; and product specialists. We are interesting in collaborating and sharing knowledge and expertise on everything from new technologies to planning principles to operational solutions that will make our laboratories some of the most sustainable environments possible. We are tackling topics such as: air management; design principles; use of hazardous materials; funding challenges; environmental impact; and the use of green technologies just to cover a few of the topics of discussion.
We want to use as many different vehicles of communication as possible including our website, blog, webinars, local presentations and larger regional and national conferences. Of course we can only do this with the support of members and sponsors.
If you haven’t already committed your support, we invite you to participate in this initiative and to encourage any of your colleagues in the laboratory community who may also be interested and willing to join Sustainable Labs Canada (SLCan). The 2021 membership forms are now available here.
The SLCan webinars are free for members only. To register click here.
