Sustainability

Sustainability

The Life Sciences have a major impact on the planet. We must be a leader in this space and demonstrate to our peers, customers, and competitors that our sector can play a key role in advancing sustainability to combat climate change and improve planetary health.

As such, our sustainability goals will focus on emissions, waste, water, giving, and individual action. Corporate goals are essential, but we all have the ability to participate through sustainable actions in our everyday lives, and what may seem like small steps, will add up.

Cell Signaling Technolgy® (CST®) has an ambitious, science-based climate goal to achieve net zero emissions by our 30th anniversary in 2029. Scientists agree the world needs to attain net-zero emissions by 2050 to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels to avert some of the worst impacts of climate change. We believe that we need to act now and demonstrate to others what is possible.

CST will continue to strengthen and globalize our corporate social responsibility efforts by becoming a member of 1% for the Planet and joining their global network of businesses, individuals and nonprofit organizations tackling our planet's most pressing environmental issues.

The 1% for the Planet movement allows us all to participate in myriad ways—through daily purchases, partnerships, memberships—we bring our diversity of choices together to create a groundswell of collective action. It’s an incredible opportunity and we are creating powerful and effective change together. Becoming a 1% for the Planet Business Member is an investment in ethical, relevant business and the future of our planet and people.

Taking Individual Action

How can you make an impact personally? Here are some suggestions for sustainability at home to create positive change:

  • Eat lower on the food chain and focus on more plant-based options;
  • Practice minimalism and understand your impacts as a consumer. Make sure everything you buy and own is put to its maximum use. Donate items that don’t have to be trashed;
  • Use your voice and your vote. Get politically involved in your community and at the national level;
  • Focus on reducing, reusing, and then recycling;
  • Grow your own produce and compost at home;
  • Think about how you commute and explore alternative modes of transportation. Consider an electric vehicle (EV);
  • Explore renewable energy and energy efficiency at home or talk to your landlord or property manager about opportunities;
  • Educate yourself about healthier materials and understand what unnecessary added chemicals of concern to avoid in daily products at sixclasses.org;
  • Buy a right-sized home for what you (and your family) need;
  • Stop unwanted paper mail;
  • Change your laundry habits. Wash less frequently and on cold;
  • Take shorter (and cooler) showers;
  • Stop using plastic and purchase products that utilize less packaging. Skip single-use items altogether and use cloth napkins and dish towels instead of paper;
  • Carry your own reusable shopping bags.
