BioWednesday Cambridge: Building a Sustainable Future for Life Sciences

18:00 - 21:00 Wednesday 15 November 2023

***Registration for this event is now closed, for registration enquiries please email***




We are delighted to be hosting this event in collaboration with Bidwells.

Did you know laboratories consume four times more water than offices1? And 45% of energy use in biology labs can be attributed to ventilation2.  Shockingly, US labs generate single-use plastic waste equivalent to 193 football pitches annually3.

Join us to discover:

  • How a ‘greener’ workplace can help secure funding; attract the right talent; save your business money; and contribute to wider global sustainability goals
  • Why laboratory-based businesses might have a tougher challenge in reaching net zero – and tools you can use to get there
  • What does ‘good’ look like for a more sustainable life sciences work environment – smarter, greener labs (including water and energy use)

What to expect:

We’ll be hearing from a panel of experts about the sustainable approaches to creating a space that meets the needs of your organisation and the planet.
