Engaged leadership and the value of sustainable health care


In a shifting health care landscape, sustainability programs are a timely investment that can generate significant cost-savings while offering a range of co-benefits. Across the country, hospitals are taking leadership roles in their communities in advocating for more environmentally responsible operations, cleaner energy, healthier and more sustainable food systems, and a smarter supply chain that avoids chemicals of concerns and drives market transformation toward safer products.

In one year, 355 leading hospitals saved more than $826 million by integrating a myriad of different sustainability initiatives. Individual hospitals saw cost-savings between $100,000 and more than $4 million annually from programs that reduce environmental impact while protecting patient, staff, and community health.
