What is Longwood Green Labs?
The HMS & HSPH Green Programs work with researchers, staff, faculty, and building managers to implement sustainable practices and technologies in HMS & HSPH lab buildings. Because of the resource intensity of lab science and the unique conditions and requirements in each individual lab, we approach lab sustainability both from a building-wide perspective, as well as a grassroots perspective aimed at identifying local opportunities at the individual lab level.
