About the My Green Lab Certification Programme
The My Green Lab Certification is the gold standard for laboratory sustainability practices worldwide. This programme evaluates labs on their sustainability initiatives, providing a comprehensive framework for continuous improvement in areas such as energy use, water consumption, waste management and chemical usage. Labs undergo rigorous assessments and receive detailed feedback to guide their journey towards greater environmental responsibility.

Programme Details and Future Plans
Synexa Life Sciences will first certify its Cape Town Lab first under this globally recognised standard. The certification process includes initial assessments, recommendations for sustainability improvements and a follow-up evaluation after six to eight months. This iterative process ensures that Synexa’s lab not only meets but exceeds the benchmarks set for sustainable practices.

Looking ahead, Synexa plans to expand its laboratory certifications across more sites, ultimately aiming for company-wide certification, reflecting a long-term commitment to sustainability.
