Many health care facilities start their sustainability journey by considering how their sustainability work supports or contributes to the organization’s mission, vision, and values through the creation of an environmental mission or commitment statement. By making this your first step, an effective sustainability strategy will build on the organization’s purpose and contribute value versus being a drain on resources. This process is also helpful to revisit as often as there are major changes to the organization’s direction.
