Sustainable solutions from our lab to yours
With our growing portfolio of products, we want to make a conscious effort to help you be eco-conscious in your lab. Our environmentally preferable products use less packaging, fewer hazardous components and generate less waste. Promega products that incorporate these values are now identified with the Green Tree Logo (right) on product pages. These products can support your existing practices and empower you to discover new opportunities for advancing your sustainability efforts.
From the loading dock to the lab bench, small changes can make a big impact. At Promega, we are committed to demonstrating sustainability and corporate responsibility in all aspects of work life. These efforts branch out and benefit our workspaces and local communities, in addition to continued support for our customers on a global scale.
My Green Lab's ACT Label
Better understanding environmental impacts during purchasing is critical for scientists and procurement specialists to support sustainability. To transparently share environmental impacts, Promega is now using My Green Lab's ACT Environmental Impact Factor Label with third-party verification of the environmental impacts through the product lifecycle.

The Green Chemistry Team catalyzes the implementation of green chemistry and engineering to provide a safer work environment and mitigate environmental impacts. For over five years this team has raised awareness of the principles of green chemistry, influenced solvent selection in research, enhanced existing manufacturing processes and inspired new product development. In 2022, a process improvement project was implemented employing greener solvents and reducing waste, environmental impact factor (e-factor), and reduced hazards during manufacturing.
