Description

Today health care organizations are under intense pressure to reduce costs, which inevitably means minimizing consumption of costly resources. Sustainability efforts that result in efficient use of energy and water, less waste, and thoughtful purchasing support an organization’s strategic and cost goals, increase stakeholder engagement, and improve overall brand. The American Hospital Association’s Sustainability Roadmap provides numerous resources for moving forward with sustainability initiatives, and ASHE’s Energy to Care program (formally known as E2C) offers recognition of organizational efforts to improve in this arena.

This session will enable attendees to:

  • Identify opportunities to use sustainability tools and initiatives from the Sustainability Roadmap, including the Energy to Care dashboard, to advance their organizations’ goals.
  • Explain how participating in the Energy to Care program can encourage staff support of sustainability initiatives.
  • Describe how engaging in sustainability efforts and recognition programs can demonstrate the value the facility department and support services bring to a health care organization.
  • Apply lessons learned from case studies of organizations that have successfully initiated sustainability efforts identified on the Sustainaiblity Roadmap.
