Labs are the most energy intensive spaces on the Harvard campus, so resource conservation and energy efficiency in the labs are of significant importance in meeting the University's goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Across Harvard, Schools and Departments are designing and building greener, more efficient lab space in which to conduct research.

The Green Labs Program works in both the Cambridge and Longwood campuses to partner with researchers, staff, faculty, and building managers to implement sustainable practices and technologies in lab buildings. By making educated purchasing choices and following best practices for resource conservation, the energy impact of lab spaces can be further reduced.
