The Wade-Martins Group has achieved a Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework (LEAF) Bronze award in recognition of its sustainable practices.

The LEAF is an accreditation scheme designed to drive efficiency improvements by helping to identify practical steps to make the laboratory more sustainable. The Wade-Martins Group identified a number of improvement areas including equipment, space use, ventilation, procurement, waste, samples and chemicals to reach the Bronze level of achievement.

To attain the award for sustainable practices, the Group participated in a recent audit which included, an assessment of our measures around waste management and energy savings such as ensuring all equipment, monitors, fume hoods, lights, etc were switched off when not in use.

Professor Richard Wade-Martins said, “I am delighted that the Group has been recognised with this award. Congratulations to everyone involved, especially to Gabriela Vilema Enriquez, Sarah Pearce and Milena Cioroch for their hard work and for arranging the lab audit.”
