The LEAF programme
UCL’s LEAF programme helps improve the sustainability of your laboratory. Register your interest with Martin Farley (m.f. arley@ucl.ac.uk). Martin can visit your lab to provide technical advice, and/or give a talk to the lab group on why sustainability is relevant in laboratories.Receive a copy of LEAF, which contains criteria on improving lab sustainability. Work through the criteria with support from Sustainable UCL. Optionally, you may use calculators to estimate the impact of your actions.
Submit your LEAF copy back to Sustainable UCL by May, and join an audit of another lab if you choose to in June.
Join our awards ceremony in July, spread the news of your success, and build on it next year! 
Free sustainability resources available here and here!
