4/4/2019 8:00:00 AM4/4/2019 10:00:00 AM Lab Energy Bottom Line: from Blueprints to Retrofits Facilities and EHS professionals working for MA life science companies are expected to meet sustainability goals for aspects like climate, energy, water and waste. Many companies are adopting a 2nd “S” for their EHS operations to include Sustainability not only to be compliant with regional and city-specific energy policy goals, but to also to save money by making their labs operate more efficiently. By bringing together a network of architectural professionals, life science facilities managers, and EHS&S directors, we will highlight relevant regulatory requirements and practical ways to implement sustainability programs, whether you are preparing to outfit a new facility, or make your current laboratories as efficient as you can.
Joining us at the forum as part of our “Resource Bar” will be the following vendors/organizations:
APAV, NESA, Harvard University, Eversource, Wilson Architects, City of Cambridge, Seeding Labs and Green Labs Recycling.
Networking before and after the panel session will allow ample time to meet and greet and hear about recent energy and carbon emission saving projects.
