Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, California, USA) has become a member of How2Recycle, a standardized labelling system that advises the public on recycling. Owned by the Green Blue Institute, Inc., the programme is comprised of brands who want their packaging to be recycled and are empowering consumers to do it through smart packaging labels.

By joining the programme, Agilent is offering its customers better information about packaging and the correct disposal of Agilent products. “We are increasing our effort in designing and developing sustainable product packaging as part of our commitment to the environment,” said Henrik Ancher-Jensen, Agilent’s president of order fulfillment and supply chain. “By adding the How2Recycle standardized label on our packaging materials, we eliminate the guesswork on what is recyclable, allowing our customers to correctly recycle.”

Agilent will have access to the official recycling labels to use on its packaging. Every package that features a How2Recycle label undergoes an individualized recyclability assessment based on detailed packaging specifications that the company sends How2Recycle via its member platform.


“To address a laboratory’s carbon footprint, we have to lead with actions that align our product R&D, development, manufacturing, packaging, delivery, and end-of-use towards those goals,” said Darlene Solomon, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Agilent Technologies. “By acting on the sustainability goals of our customers, we are able to deliver our brand promise in a meaningful way and we are committed to listening, learning, and working with outside agencies to improve and to drive positive change within our markets and industry.”
