I find that I face an ever-present battle for balance. It’s a struggle between creating the next new thing, while keeping what was the new thing going and delivering on its intended outcomes. I often find myself in the thick of the nitty-gritty details with my team. They help shield me from quite a bit, but we all have to roll up our sleeves. So when you’re doing that day in and day out, how do you find the time to create those new ideas, or even evolve your thinking about current projects to move them forward—a core component of everything we do?

MilliporeSigma Centers Work Toward a Smaller Carbon Footprint in India

Article

India is the third-largest emitter of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the world, accounting for 6.8 percent of global CO2 emissions. At the 2015 United Nations Convention on Climate Change, India signed the Paris Agreement and committed to reducing CO2 emissions 35 percent by 2030 compared to 2005 emission levels. Since then, the Indian government has introduced emissions control measures for power plants and tighter vehicular emission standards, while calling on businesses to reduce emissions.

Although popular and highly effective, solar panels aren’t the only option to save on energy costs.

In fact, energy efficiency is a tried and true method to reduce energy consumption and lower energy costs with a rapid return on investment. Beyond the economic benefits, energy efficiency measures such as improved lighting, weatherization and efficient heating and cooling equipment can actually improve overall building comfort and productivity at home and at work.

Curiosity Cube™ Visits State College

Article

A retrofitted shipping container is a new approach in hands-on science classes for local students. The Curiosity Cube is making stops in several Centre County schools this week. Inside the cube three separate learning stations. One is dedicated to DNA, another the Brain Station and the third is a 3d printer. "It's really about sparking curiosity within our future generation of scientists.

DOZN™ - A Quantitative Green Chemistry Evaluator

Article

MilliporeSigma created a unique, web-based greener alternative scoring matrix, also known as DOZN™: a quantitative green chemistry evaluator based on the 12 principles of green chemistry. The 12 principles of green chemistry provide a framework for learning about green chemistry and designing or improving materials, products, processes and systems. DOZN™ scores products based on metrics for each principle and aggregates the principle scores to derive a final aggregate score.

What's Possible When Science Isn't Boring?

Article

I often envy what the world looks like through the eyes of a child. Even the simplest things can make a child curious. This inquisitive mindset enables them to get lost in exploration without caring about what needs to get done, because the definition of “need” is different for a child.

MilliporeSigma Launches First Green Chemistry Rating System

by Antonio Pasolini, Justmeans
Article

We often think of chemicals as highly toxic materials that could even prove lethal. But chemistry is everywhere and we rely on it for everything we need in daily life, from the ink in our pens to the actual food we eat. It is an integral part of our routines and industrial processes.

As such, chemicals also need a green overhaul as they can be aggressive to the planet and animal lives, and must be replaced with safer alternatives. Companies are under increasing pressure to offer safer, planet-friendly alternatives, but how is the public to know how much safer they are?
