Enabling sustainability in our customers’ labs

Thermo Fisher Scientific is committed to designing our products with the environment in mind—it’s part of how we enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer. We are taking a fresh look at how we make our products and how our customers are using them. By incorporating principles of green chemistry and green engineering into our product design, we are minimizing chemical hazards, increasing reaction efficiency, and minimizing waste. Our greener product alternatives can help advance sustainability in the lab by minimizing the use of hazardous chemicals, minimizing waste and material consumption, and increasing energy efficiency. This not only helps our customers to be more sustainable but also helps improve lab safety and reduces costs.  

Look for the leaf

To make it easy to find our greener product alternatives, we have added a green leaf symbol to product search results and product pages. Wherever possible, we work to provide our customers with sustainable product options with the following features:

  • Reduced hazard
  • Reduced waste; use of fewer resources
  • Energy efficiency
  • Sustainable packaging
  • Sustainable disposal
