Sustainable PNNL - Balancing social, environmental, and economic needs for a more sustainable future

Sustainability at PNNL

We believe that our triple-bottom-line approach to managing Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's sustainability performance—including the environmental, social, and economic pillars—makes us better stewards by helping us think holistically about the impact of our work, while focusing on what is most important to our stakeholders. In this way, we foster the long-term success of the organization.

Interdisciplinary teams coordinate to make sustainability integral to both our research and our operations. We "walk the talk" by applying our own scientific discoveries and innovations, as well as sustainability best practices, to our own research and operations. We challenge ourselves to set priorities and continually improve performance for the benefit of our employees, our organization, and our community.
