A focus on sustainability is something that is central to Greiner’s strategy and the partnership with Forest Green Rovers is a fantastic reminder that sustainability extends to all walks of life from sport, to science and healthcare and beyond.
Greiner Bio-One, part of Greiner AG which was founded in 1868 and family owned for 5 generations, is a leading manufacturer of high-quality laboratory and clinical products to academia, research establishments, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare organisations globally.
Focusing on the evolving needs of customers in the development of innovative solutions, products include solutions for clinical sampling (the VACUETTE® collection system), cannulation, cryostorage, cell and tissue culture (including 3D), high throughput screening, immunology, microbiology, liquid handling and molecular biology. These products and many more played a critical role during the pandemic, with the VACUETTE® Virus Stabilisation Tube being used globally for the safe transport of samples for PCR testing and Greiner Bio-One laboratory products being a key element of the production of the BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.
Launched in 2020 Greiner’s sustainability strategy, Blue Plan, focuses on the action areas of climate change, the circular economy, and people. There is a strong belief that these areas are closely intertwined: Without a circular economy there can be no carbon neutrality and only with well trained and motivated employees will we achieve the transformation needed.
Greiner also hosts a sustainability podcast series including interviews with leading figures in sustainability such as Dale Vince OBE and Dame Jane Goodall https://www.greiner.com/en/greiner-talks/.
