ACT Label: A Tool to Identify Sustainable Products.
The ACT label is a virtual “eco-nutrition” label for laboratory products that is published on My Green Lab’s website for public access. ACT labels emphasize Accountability, Consistency, and Transparency (ACT) around manufacturing, user impact, and end-of-life impact. Scientists, sustainability directors, procurement specialists, and manufacturers provided valuable feedback on the Environmental Impact Factor criteria, resulting in the most comprehensive product labeling program for life science products. The ACT label enables product-specific comparisons and empowers purchasing with environmental awareness.
“The lower the score on the ACT label, the lower the environmental impact,” said Allison Paradise, Executive Director of My Green Lab. “Labcon’s scores of 1 in manufacturing impact and responsible chemical management are the lowest possible and reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability.”
