Many healthcare organizations are reducing their carbon footprint in response to the adverse effects to the environment caused by excess waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Cost savings may be realized by utilizing energy-efficient technologies, implementing waste management strategies, and taking advantage of the climate provisions in recently enacted federal law which allow for new or expanded tax credits for energy-efficient facilities and incentives for equipment that can be used for renewable energy.

We recently introduced the Sustainable Healthcare Certification  program that provides a framework to help organizations expand or continue their decarbonization efforts to receive public recognition for their commitment and achievements in contributing to sustainability. This certification helps to support:

  • A positive environmental impact
  • Operational cost savings
  • Improved health outcomes
  • An enhanced reputation of your organization
  • Compliance with regulations and reduced risk
