Introduction to data & goal setting

Tuesday, Apr. 9, 1:00 p.m. ET

Introduction to data & goal setting

Date range
Description

By collecting and analyzing data on a wide range of factors – including energy and resource use, GHG emissions, waste, supply chain performance, and more – hospitals can generate the deep insights they need to guide their sustainability initiatives and improve their resource efficiency. Measurement is one of the keys to management, and data empowers leaders to make decisions based on facts, trends, and statistics. Join this session to learn about goal setting, data governance, and developing baseline data.

Key takeaways:

  • Gain new ways of approaching short- and long-term goal-setting in alignment with your organization’s mission.
  • Uncover next steps to enhance your structure for data governance, including baseline and dashboard development.
  • Define key metrics and calculations for baseline data development across Practice Greenhealth’s impact areas.
  • Identify opportunities for recognition, such as Practice Greenhealth’s Environmental Excellence Awards.
