Agilent Technologies, Inc. has become a sponsor of My Green Lab, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the sustainability of scientific research.

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (Santa Clara, California) has become a sponsor of My Green Lab, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the sustainability of scientific research.

Agilent chose to support My Green Lab because of its “holistic approach to sustainability and their understanding of the interconnectivity between all the parts that make up a laboratory-from chemicals to instruments to the environment,” according to the company.

“Sustainability is a key consideration in all our activities, and we look forward to ultimately passing on the benefits of our efforts and innovation to make better informed, sustainable choices”, said Mike McMullen, Agilent CEO.

Agilent is currently working with My Green Lab to have the company’s instruments independently audited for the organization’s Accountability, Consistency, and Transparency (ACT) label. The ACT label provides information about the environmental impact of manufacturing, using, and disposing of a product and its packaging.

“We are really excited to be working with Agilent,” My Green Lab CEO Allison Paradise said in a statement. “The fact that Agilent is willing to highlight sustainability through our ACT labelling program speaks to Agilent’s leadership in this area.”
