Mission / Vision



Green Building

Green Labs are the Intersection of safety, sustainability and competitiveness

  • Health & Safety and Sustainability are the same thing, they’re just on different timescales

  • Safety is not an option but a must: safety concepts need to be adapted continuesly to changing risks
  • R&D Competitiveness is impacted by:
  • Business continuity (e.g. reliability of energy supply)
  • Cost efficiency during the entire life cycle
  • Flexibility to adapt to changing environments
  • Attractiveness for the best talents
  • R&D efficiency and R&D output

"Green Lab” is more than a building. It is a comprehensive approach for: 

  • the building and it’s infrastructure
  • the installed equipment and consumables
  • the different users and their operation
