Our Environmental Management System (ERS) controls the identification, segregation and disposal of waste materials.  We also continuously reduce waste output and work with certified waste handling and recycling professionals to ensure all waste is being disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner and in accordance with current environmental regulations.

AGAT Laboratories employs numerous measures to minimize the level of pollutants released to the environment and attempts to recycle as much as possible.  We are continuously starting new internal initiatives to identify areas where we can preserve energy and reuse our resources. Long term environmental sustainability is a policy that we follow and continue to pursue.

We extend our support across Canada by monetary and in kind contributions to charities and community projects in our local communities. AGAT Laboratories is committed to build on the success of our initiatives in the communities we operate in.
