Cleveland Clinic: Individual behaviors help reduce energy

Employee engagement toolkit

Description

(Employee engagement toolkit) The rate at which Cleveland Clinic uses energy has financial costs, as well as human and environmental health impacts. Reducing the rate of energy used creates a cleaner environment, improves health, and delivers substantial cost savings over the short and long term. In pursuit of care affordability, over $12M of energy waste was identified across the health system. As the facilities experts fine-tune and upgrade buildings and operating systems, caregivers’ workplace behaviors come into sharp focus to help reduce energy demand.
