“All national labs have a special role to play by providing
                      world-class science & technology to help the nation address
                      its biggest problems. One attribute that sets PNNL apart is
                      its ongoing attention to the Four Pillars. The effect that our
                      actions and investments have on these factors is central to our
                      strategic decision making.”
