We participate in the recycling programme. Our non-recyclable plastics are sent to an energy recovery facility and are used for electricity generation.
Nationwide Laboratories donate old laboratory equipment, such as microscopes, to schools rather than disposing of them in landfill.
Our Service List is printed onto Carbon Balanced Paper through the World Land Trust scheme, using sustainable vegetable inks.
We have introduced new bags for packaging your samples for courier collection. Our bags are now sustainably sourced, carbon neutral, fully recyclable, made from sugar cane and come in small or large size depending on the number of submissions you need to enclose on the day.
NVSL recycles unwanted electrical and electronic equipment through a partnership with CRC (The Community Recycling Consortium). Money raised by CRC helps aid training and employment of people with physical disabilities and mental health issues.
Our delivery fleet meets the latest EU Emissions standards (Euro 4/Euro 6), and we ensure our delivery routes are as environmentally efficient as possible across our entire network.
We use motion sensor LED lighting in our premises where we can, and strive to manage our energy consumption throughout the rest of our operations through efficient energy-saving solutions.
We always have our eyes open for new green initiatives to adopt, in order to work towards a more sustainable future. If you’d like to keep up to date with our environmental accountability, make sure to check our blog for our latest sustainability updates.FIND OUT MORE
