(Transportation toolkit) The Practice Greenhealth transportation goals have been developed to help hospitals create a baseline of key transportation performance metrics, set targets, and identify strategies to improve environmental and human health impacts of transportation-related activities.
The goals focus on three areas of hospital-related transportation activities critical in achieving reductions in both air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions resulting from transportation and are based on proven strategies demonstrated by Practice Greenhealth member hospitals and health systems and other major community employers:
- Employee commute
- Fleet vehicle management
- Supply chain practices
