In these times, sustainability is more important than ever and taking care of the earth as well as each other makes for an impactful change to our new normal.
How do we approach environmental sustainability at Thermo Fisher Scientific? It starts with perspective—thinking beyond the current take-make-dispose economic system to create a more restorative, circular model that designs out waste, keeps products and materials in use for as long as possible, and regenerates natural resources.

With this in mind, we are taking a long look at how we design our products and identifying ways to reduce health and environmental impacts across a product’s lifecycle, so we can move toward a more resource-efficient, closed-loop system. This means:
We have rigorously evaluated products to ensure they meet at least one of the following four criteria: is less hazardous; is made with less material or reduces the need to use other materials; contains content from renewable resources; and is efficient in the use of energy. For us, these have developed into our pillars of sustainability:
Discover how we, along with our customers, are trying to make every day Earth Day. Learn about our pillars of sustainability, which includes: energy efficient, less hazardous, sustainable packaging and less waste.
Join us on our path towards sustainable science, including 14 zero waste-certified facilities and a recent commitment to a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030.
What does “less hazardous” really mean? Find out about how we evaluate less hazardous products and learn about the ACT label, an eco-nutrition label that helps you make greener choices for the lab.
Packaging design must consider how to protect the product and minimize impact on the environment. We’re started using 100% recyclable paper coolers for cold shipping and that’s only the beginning.
