MilliporeSigma Offers Greener Alternative Products

Publication Date

MIT and MilliporeSigma have entered into a new three-year agreement for chemical and life science products, extending their longstanding Preferred Supplier relationship.

This agreement offers MIT researchers deeper discounts on materials, especially on alternative, greener products. MilliporeSigma has a portfolio of more than 1,300 unique greener products to help support sustainable research. See Greener Alternative Products in the MilliporeSigma Catalog.

Specific features include:

  • Collaboration: MilliporeSigma will work with MIT to provide environmentally preferable products, waste management strategies, and data on environmental aspects of MIT’s purchases.
  • Product Labeling: MilliporeSigma is required to label environmentally preferable product claims by including an ecolabel icon and/or the certification or standard in its catalog. This feature is already enabled in the MilliporeSigma punchout catalog in Buy-to-Pay (B2P) as designated with a special green icon.
  • Catalog Enhancements: MilliporeSigma is working to enhance its online catalog to make it easier for MIT purchasers to search for greener alternative products. They anticipate these enhancements to be completed later in 2022.
