Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced the company’s Certified Pre-Owned Instruments Program received a Top Project award for achieving outstanding results in reducing waste. The award is sponsored by Environment +Energy Leader, a leading publisher of environmental, energy and sustainability best practices and research. Agilent’s Certified Pre-Owned Instruments Program gives Agilent lab customers the option to trade in their used analytical instrument for cash or toward the purchase of a new instrument. Customers can also return select decommissioned instruments to Agilent for recycling. Agilent refurbishes used systems to new instrument standards, then resells them to customers who might not otherwise have access to high-quality instruments due to budget constraints. Systems that cannot be refurbished to Agilent’s high standards are evaluated for part reuse and recycling wherever feasible. In fiscal year 2021, Agilent bought back over 900 used instruments from customers; sold over 3,500 certified pre-owned instruments; and took back 2,000 instruments through the program. The Certified Pre-Owned Instruments Program is a contributor to Agilent’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) focus and complements other product sustainability initiatives within the company, including designing analytical instruments to use less energy and produce less waste; product labeling that indicates the environmental footprint of select Agilent instruments; leadership in lab sustainability practices; and digital technology like CrossLab Connect that enable labs to operate more efficiently through automation, artificial intelligence, and virtual support. The initiative also advances Agilent’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
