April is Earth Month, when we raise awareness and advocate for change around the issues most impacting our planet. The Lab has long been involved in science critical to managing environmental and climate issues—including clean fusion energy and other technology development in ATAP. Efforts to improve sustainability at Berkeley Lab are led by John Elliot, who works with partners across the site to:

  • Reduce the Lab’s climate, waste, and water footprint
  • Improve operations and reduce waste
  • Enable sustainable solutions
  • Apply Laboratory research

To find out more about the Lab’s efforts to improve our environmental performance, including the use of electric vehicles and commuting options, recycling, composting, minimizing plastic waste, and reducing energy and water use, as well as our sustainability policy and performance goals, check out Sustainable Berkeley Lab.

There are several volunteer opportunities at the Lab during the month. Check out the list of activities from our Community Relations and Sustainability colleagues.
