about

My name is Nikoline Borgermann and I own and run

the value-driven company Ava Sustain.

I am a biochemist by training and an environmentalist by heart!

 

I have a PhD degree in Health and Medical Sciences from the University of Copenhagen and have worked in wet labs for more than 7 years

in Germany and Denmark.

 

I have always enjoyed working in a lab and love the combination of

office work, practical work, project planning and dissemination.

 

But one thing I never came to terms with is the ecological footprint of lab work. The heavy use of energy, water and consumables is definitely not improving the state of our planet --  and neither is the substantial 

amount of waste that lab work generates!

The good news is that companies, institutions, labs and individuals can do a lot to reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint

of lab work without compromising the research.

 

For that reason I started a green task force at the institute

where I did my PhD and contributed to the ongoing sustainability

efforts on Faculty level. And that´s why I founded Ava Sustain:

to promote sustainability in life sciences and biotech

by inspiring to green transitions and supplying the tools

to successfully achieve your sustainability goals.  

 

I offer (online) courses, seminars and workshops on green lab practices

and sustainable procurement, I facilitate and manage green projects in laboratory contexts, and I provide flexible consultancy services.

Take a look at my services if you want to know more -- or get in touch 

for an informal talk about what I can do for you.
