Protecting Planet Earth Through Sustainability Initiatives

Green and sustainable evolution is a key priority for many global governments and organizations to tackle climate change. Explore Agilent's Sustainability Media Room to learn more about what Agilent and our collaborators are doing to implement more sustainable practices.


Sustainability for the Future

Earth’s finite resources are depleting at an unsustainable rate due to excessive human extraction and overuse, consequentially leading to rises in greenhouse gas emissions. Since the United Nation’s launched its collection of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs/Global Goals) in 2015 serving as a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all,”1 many global organizations have pledged to align with these goals taking drastic, yet necessary action in reducing their carbon footprint to protect the planet from rising greenhouse gas emissions and the effects of climate change. In this Media Room, we share newsworthy information on what Agilent and our collaborators are doing around environmental sustainability.
