SESI Receives GEELA Award for Climate Leadership

Sustainability Champion of the Month
Tom Haggerty - Lab Manager for Parsonnet Lab
After learning through the Cardinal Green Buildings Campaign that the ultra-low temperature freezers in his lab could be set to a temperature of -70 degrees Celsius (instead of -80), Tom Haggerty “chilled up” not just one, but three lab freezers! His decision shows that small actions can make a big difference—chilling up each freezer saves over 1000 kwh per year! The annual carbon emissions avoided from chilling up these freezers would more than offset a round-trip flight from San Francisco to New York.
Have an ultra-low temperature freezer in your lab? Learn more about chilling it up here.
