Microbiology and climate change: Building a sustainable future together
sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific
The world is at a climate change tipping point. We have less than a decade to reduce our impact on the environment, and avoid irreversible damage that will decimate ecosystems and result in continuous crises.
"Going green" can feel like an uphill struggle for microbiology, which, by its very nature, uses huge quantities of water, energy, and single-use plastics. But as the scientific community demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic, nothing is out of reach if we all work together.
Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes, and moving fresh ideas and game-changing solutions from the drawing board to routine laboratory use takes collaboration.
There is no time to lose. The time for action is now.
