Ethical Corporation Names Life Technologies' First CSO Sustainability Executive of the Year
Date:7/11/2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced that its newly appointed Chief Sustainability Officer, Cristina Amorim, has been named Sustainability Executive of the Year at the Ethical Corporation's annual Responsible Business Forum awards ceremony.  She received the honor in recognition for her strategic role in Life's emergence as a Corporate Social Responsibility leader.

"Life Technologies has made incredible strides in reducing its carbon footprint at its Carlsbad headquarters and throughout its global sites under Cristina's leadership," said Greg Lucier, Chairman and CEO of Life Technologies.  "Her experience in successfully driving innovative initiatives will be crucial as we continue our commitment to being responsible global citizens.  Cristina's recognition among her global peers is well-deserved."

Recently named the company's first chief sustainability officer, Amorim has spearheaded a team at Life Technologies since 2004 that has implemented several programs to successfully execute sustainability-inspired growth strategies that include design-for-environment and green chemistry principles. 

Rather than working to meet compliance standards, Amorim has taken a holistic approach by considering Life Technologies' full life cycle of its products, packaging, services and processes, then implementing strategies to reduce their impact on the environment.

Some of her team's initiatives have included fostering new partnerships in the value chain; transitioning the company from a linear (take-make-waste) to a closed-loop business model; and introducing innovative concepts such as zero waste, low-carbon delivery, reverse logistics, and product take-back for reuse, recycling, and refurbishment.
