Sustainability Services for Laboratories

26th February 2015

The UK is a world leader in setting legally binding emission targets. Back in 2008, we were the first country worldwide to set our emission targets. Since then, VWR has been developing a diverse range of unique services to help our customers reduce their laboratory running costs.

So why focus on sustainability?

We at VWR passionately believe that our services need to represent the current and future needs of our customers, and the future is sustainability. We are very proud to be able to show our clients what their running costs are and subsequently identify where savings could be made, without having any negative impact upon the work being carried out in the laboratory. This can be achieved by a number of means including promoting best practice and highlighting alternative items of equipment which have significantly lower running costs.

When we talk about running costs, energy efficiency is only the tip of the iceberg. Electricity usage represents the main source of carbon emissions and the subsequent carbon tax affects many organisations. Our services are designed to help minimise these costs… and others. To give our clients the complete picture, we also can advise on all the relevant costs associated with each individual item of equipment, including servicing and maintenance, water consumption, heat output, consumables, reagents, warranty, recyclability and lifespan. VWR can help you minimise all of these costs. So, whether you would like to have your laboratory assessed, or perhaps you are looking to attain more sustainable procurement, download our brochure to find out more.
