On the threshold of the sixth mass extinction of life on Earth, it is crucial to raise awareness of ecological challenges and encourage all citizens to take action to reduce their negative impact on the environment.
Let’s go green is an initiative created and led by CRCT employees to discuss how to apply the principles of sustainable development at work, i.e. in the research laboratories.
This group specifically discusses alternatives and solutions to limit our ecological impact and proposes concrete actions that employees can apply to significantly reduce their CO2 and waste production.
Furthermore, another important mission of Let’s Go Green is to educate and inform all CRCT employees about the environmental challenges of the coming years and the impact of their lifestyle on global warming and the massive loss of biodiversity.
