A more efficient way to get products is also a greener way
The Supply Center by Thermo Fisher Scientific solution provides instant access to the products you use most. But did you know it can also help make your lab more environmentally friendly?
Our customizable inventory management solutions can improve your ability to maintain proper stock levels, control costs, and anticipate future demand—all while automated billing can reduce approval delays, freeing up precious time for scientists and lab managers. On top of the flexibility of instant fulfillment, a Supply Center can also help make your lab more environmentally friendly through consolidated restocking shipments that can reduce packaging waste. Plus our comprehensive and convenient product catalog allows you to easily find and select greener product alternatives.
By consolidating restocking shipments, together with our customers we have reduced packaging waste by almost 700,000 pounds annually, including elimination of over 100,000 cu. ft. of EPS coolers. By ordering through a Supply Center, customers can reduce the number of packages they receive by as much as 39%.*
Additionally, 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 not only help our customers to be more sustainable but also help improve lab safety and reduce costs.
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 provide our customers with sustainable product options with the following features:
- Less hazardous
- Less wasteful; uses fewer resources
- Energy efficient
- Sustainable packaging
- Sustainable disposal
Providing greener options is just one more way Thermo Fisher Scientific is enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
