{Past Event} - Trends in Healthcare Sustainability: What do hospitals want from suppliers?

January 18, 2012 - 2:00 pm - January 18, 2012 - 3:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


Practice Greenhealth collects data from its participating hospitals on environmental program implementation, waste reduction, energy efficiency, green team development, recycling materials, and more. Come find out how this knowledge can inform your product development and marketing decisions. Topics covered include who runs hospital environmental programs, what the trends are in environmental purchasing, how much waste hospitals really generate and how much they pay to dispose of it, and common waste reduction practices. Only Practice Greenhealth members have access to this information.
