The LEAF Initiative


What is LEAF? The Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework (LEAF) has been developed by UCL to help Lab managers, technical staff, academics, and students address environmental sustainability issues in the labs that they work in.

LEAF is endorsed by Universities UK and a growing number of institutions are participating.


LEAF is a bespoke toolkit to enhance sustainability and efficiency in Laboratories. Evidencing improved sustainability practice in laboratories through benchmarking with LEAF would enhance the reputation of University of Southampton.

The LEAF initiative will help you improve the sustainability and efficiency of your laboratories.
