Our sustainability program was established to facilitate cooperation across departments and ensure that our operations adapt to the unique challenges in healthcare sustainability. We have a steering committee that consists of senior leaders throughout our clinical and general services departments that guide our progress. We have sustainability champions that exist throughout our organization that are critical to disseminating information and providing feedback on the challenges and successes of our programs.
Our committees and task forces are designed around the key performance indicators we’re required to report to UCOP, Practice Greenhealth, and our executive leadership. They include Climate & Energy, Zero Waste, Food & Nutrition, Procurement, Transportation, Green Building, Greening the OR, and Greening the Labs.
