Sarah Joy Newton, our sustainability programme lead and Steve Bagshaw from CPI, took to the stage this week to present at Reset Connect which is the UK’s largest sustainability ecosystem and green investment event and is the flagship event of London Climate Action Week.

They presented on the sustainability challenges of the IVD industry and how BIVDA has implemented a multitude of support strategies and tools to assist members on their sustainability journeys’.

This included showcasing the fantastic Sustainability Hub which is accessed by members through their member log in on the website.

Steve went on the present the collaboration between CPI and BIVDA to improve the sustainability of green chemistry within the IVD industry. Specifically, to engage industry and innovation funding in a Grand Challenge to resolve the issue of PFAs otherwise known as ‘Forever Chemicals.’

We are looking forward to the next stage of that project – a workshop in September with stakeholders to discuss how to move it forward.
