Laboratory Efficiency Action Network (LEAN)

LEAN is a network of UK university STEM professionals that all share a similar motivation, reducing the environmental and economic impact of our laboratories. We believe that the higher education sector should collaborate to achieve the same goals more efficiently and comprehensively. LEAN aims to benefit our own institutions but also to assist other universities in implementing their own Green Labs initiatives. 

Some example of our outputs are as follows:

  • Job descriptions
  • Tender specifications
  • Data
  • Case studies and experience
  • Environmental sustainability certification for labs (LEAF)
  • Best practice guides
