Sterling Earth Day Initiative – Paperless as of 04/22/15

Atlanta, GA, April 23, 2015 – Sterling commemorated Earth Day 2015 with the implementation of a paperless environment. As of April 22nd, all documents are available exclusively on SilverLink, Sterling IRB’s web portal. Approximately 1 billion trees’ worth of paper is thrown away every year in the United States. By discontinuing the mailing of paper documents, Sterling is actively working to reduce this number and positively impact the environment. Ted Green, president and CEO of Sterling IRB has stated, “I am excited for the direction Sterling is taking, strengthening client relations by streamlining the process in which documents are available and strengthening our commitment to the environment.”

In addition, Sterling IRB is making a donation to the American Forest Foundation to help support green business practices.

The Sterling Institutional Review Board ("Sterling IRB" or "Sterling") was established in 1991 as an independent review board that provides protection for human research participants through the initial and ongoing review of research studies. As an independent review board, Sterling IRB is not affiliated with an academic institution or a research hospital.

Sterling IRB reviews multi-center research studies as well as those involving a single investigator. Its client base consists of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, clinical research organizations (CROs), federal agencies and individual investigators. Sterling IRB may also act as the review board for studies conducted at hospitals or academic institutions and is approved by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to review studies for investigators who are conducting clinical research in the state of Massachusetts. The Sterling IRB administrative staff is committed to exceptional, individual customer service while keeping the research study cost effective.
