EPFL’s CO2 Calculator: Assessing lab emissions and identifying opportunities for reduction

In the Sustainability Office of the School of Life Sciences at EPFL, one of the key missions is to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of 50+ research laboratories and core facilities. EPFL has developed an online emissions calculation tool to assess the carbon footprint of a research lab and identify leverage points to take action.  This talk will present EPFL’s CO2 Calculator, delve into the challenges faced in quantifying, and the many reduction opportunities that were identified. Depending on the type of research conducted, footprints differ greatly from one lab to another. There is no one solution that fits all but meaningful emissions reduction can be reached with joint efforts at the individual, laboratory, and institutional levels.
