Miele Professional, a global leader in high-quality commercial and industrial appliances, including lab equipment, is proud to announce that three of its machines – the Miele PG 8583, PG 8593, and PG 8583 CD glassware washers – have earned the coveted ACT Label from My Green Lab, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a culture of sustainability in science. The ACT Label represents the standard for lab sustainability and Miele is the only glassware washer manufacturer to have achieved certification.
“Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at Miele. We continuously strive to be a global leader in environmental protection within our industry and are committed to our promise to conserve valuable resources, save energy and reduce emissions,” said Marion Anacker, Head of Sales, Lab – Medical – Dental, Miele Professional USA. “We believe there is a great opportunity to continue to reduce the environmental impact of labs across the country through smarter equipment, and My Green Lab’s eco-nutrition label is making sustainable purchasing decisions easier every day. We applaud this initiative and are incredibly proud that three of our machines have earned ACT Label certification.”
The ACT acronym represents Accountability, Consistency and Transparency, and much like nutrition labels, the ACT label shows how products 'rate' in sustainability-related categories. The Environmental Impact Factor is a sum of verified information on a product's energy consumption, water use, and end-of-life. Three Miele glassware washers received the following Environmental Impact Factors:
- Miele PG 8583 glassware washer – Environmental Impact Factor of 72.5
- Miele PG 8593 glassware washer – Environmental Impact Factor of 76.6
- Miele PG 8583 CD glassware washer – Environmental Impact Factor of 74.5
Miele’s PG 8583 glassware washer already achieved ACT Label certification in 2019. Following My Green Lab’s rigorous testing process, the model has been recertified, along with the first-time certification of the PG 8593 and PG 8583 CD. Certifications will be valid for one calendar year.
“By certifying their glassware washers through our ACT Label program, Miele is helping set the standard for sustainable laboratory equipment. The label supports their customers to make more informed purchasing decisions, leveraging a trusted third-party system,” said James Connelly, My Green Lab’s Chief Executive Officer. “Ultimately, this helps save water, energy and reduce the environmental impact of a critical, but often resource intensive industry.”
My Green Lab is widely recognized as a leader in developing nationally recognized-standards for laboratories, bringing sustainability to the community responsible for the world's life-changing medical and technical innovations.
Miele Professional’s full portfolio of laboratory glassware washers are ideally suited for service in labs dedicated to clinical diagnostics, pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage, specialty and petrochemicals, water and wastewater treatment, environmental testing, general industrial, education and medical research.
