Key Initiatives

Our sustainability program focuses on eight key initiatives that are reducing our impact on the environment: Engaged Leadership, Less Waste, Safer Chemicals, Greening the OR, Healthy Food, Environmentally Preferable Purchasing, Energy/Water Conservation and Green Building. Each initiative has been assigned a leader, a team and a set of reporting metrics to develop an annual strategic plan and set goals. Our Healthcare Sustainability Committee provides a structure for reporting the program’s results, reviewing strategic goals and developing new goals for the next reporting year.
