Hospitals and Health systems


Our partners are at the center of our work. The Practice Greenhealth experience guides hospitals and health systems in achieving key successes in sustainability in all of our prioritized impact areas. Everything we do is strategically designed to strengthen, accelerate, and transform your organization.


Health care sustainability is hard work, but over the years we have proven that significant change is achievable. These changes manifest in healthier populations — and lower costs. We are confident that the health care sector, which makes up nearly 18% of the U.S. economy, will use its power and responsibility to continue the transformation of the entire market toward a healthier future.


Partner opportunities

Facility premium is open to any hospital facility that is committed to environmental sustainability. Partner investment fees for individual facilities are based on the number of full-time equivalents (FTEs) per facility.

System partner

A system-level partnership is open to health systems with at least four participating facilities. Partnership investment fees are determined by the number of facilities. Discounts are applied based on the number of facilities in the system.
