Green Hospitals and Healthcare: Today, most industries in the United States are finding new ways of becoming more environmentally sustainable as a way of cutting costs and/or in fulfilling their corporate citizenship missions. Although hospitals and other healthcare organizations are conscious of these efforts, they face the unique challenge of round-the-clock operations, hazardous waste management, large- scale staffing and extreme energy consumption.
With this webinar, you will gain insight and tactics to:
- Making the business case for going green in terms of the bottom line / financials and long-term ROI, staff satisfaction and increased customer base
- How other hospitals have developed their green efforts and how they leveraged partnerships with outside organizations to put a sustainability plan in action
- How going green and becoming more sustainable is part of the larger mission of healthcare and healing environments and how it is related to your community relations mission
