My Green Lab

Modern neuroscience research generates substantial plastic waste, consumes significant amounts of water, and demands considerable energy. Understanding the impact of climate change on people with neurological conditions like epilepsy, Professors David Henshall and Norman Delanty were invited to lead task forces within the newly formed
Climate Change Commission at the ILAE. This commission aims to review and advocate for sustainable practices in research and clinical settings.

In recognition of our commitment to sustainability, in 2022 the FutureNeuro laboratories at RCSI and Beaumont Hospital were awarded My Green Lab Certification for outstanding work in reducing the environmental impact of laboratory space and for successfully completing the My Green Lab Certification Programme as a Platinum Level Certified Lab.Moving forward, our objective is to extend this accreditation and conduct a comprehensive audit of our carbon footprint and sustainability practices across the Centre.
