UMBC’s Green Labs Program is a set of initiatives and guidelines designed to reduce the environmental impact of laboratories. This program focuses on reducing energy consumption, minimizing waste, and promoting the use of sustainable practices in the laboratory setting. UMBC’s Green Labs Program is derived from the Green Office Program and can help laboratories learn about operational sustainability, reduce their carbon footprint, and support overall sustainability efforts.
UMBC Green Labs
A UMBC Green Lab is a lab that has successfully had one faculty or staff member complete the My Green Labs Assessment. These labs and their associated departments will be featured on a special interactive webpage, receive a ranking, and will be published in the Sustainability Office’s Newsletter. Additionally, all UMBC Green Labs have the option of submitting more information about their research. This information will be used by the Sustainability Office to highlight the lab’s research efforts and commitments to sustainability. A UMBC Green Lab certification is valid for 4 Academic Years.
Can Students Join?
YES! Student researchers can also be a part of this program. UMBC’s Office of Sustainability will highlight research work from UMBC students who successfully complete the program.
