The University of Nottingham has signed up to the Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework (LEAF). LEAF contains actions which lab users can take to save water, energy, plastics and other resources. By taking part, laboratories will reduce their carbon emissions and create an environment that supports research quality.

Labs are awarded either a bronze, silver or gold level depending on how many sustainability actions they take. LEAF will provide metrics that the university sustainability team can use to find new ideas on how to make our research and lab spaces more sustainable.
