King’s College London manages a variety of laboratories conducting world class research across its campuses. A laboratory will consume 3-5 times more energy per m2 than normal academic spaces. Thus in line with the goal to be Net Zero Carbon by 2025, laboratories must be included in this initiative. King’s is focused on reducing the environmental impact of its research while simultaneously improving its research environment. King’s has embarked on a variety of engagement and energy saving projects, which were recognised at the 2016 Green Gown Awards.
While much has been done, there is plenty more to do. If you have any ideas, queries, or want to get involved with this growing area of sustainability or the ongoing laboratory awards, please contact the sustainability team.
