Making Big Strides Toward a Smaller Footprint
by Kim Evans - 05/27/10
Reduce, reuse, and recycle—three basic principles that help guide responsible actions toward our environment. These principles are as relevant today as ever, and at Life Technologies, we put them to work at all levels of our business operations. However, with the serious environmental threats we now face, reaching toward a state of genuine sustainability will challenge us to step outside our comfort zone in search of truly innovative ways to lessen our impact.
Life Technologies is committed to:
re:think — Take a fresh look at what we do, why we do it, and how it impacts the environment
re:search — Find better materials, more efficient processes, and greener partnerships
re:solve — Make the decisions that bring sustainable solutions into practice and offer greener product alternatives
Through Life Technologies’ Product Stewardship program, Life Technologies strives to continuously assess and improve the health effects, safety and environmental impact of our products, processes and services throughout the product life cycle. We go beyond compliance, incorporating Design-for-Environment principles from ideation to end-of-life.
