Invitation to submit data for the

2022 Green Hospital Scorecard

The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care is pleased to announce the 2022 Green Hospital Scorecard data call (collecting 2021 data) and extends an invitation to all hospitals to participate!

The Scorecard program provides meaningful measures of hospital operations, management, and policy adoption in environmental sustainability and climate change. It benchmarks environmental performance for hospitals alongside de-identified peer data and is an excellent way for hospitals to demonstrate commitment to environmental sustainability.

The program collects data that reflects environmental performance in 10 categories: Energy, Water, Waste, Pollution Prevention, Corporate Leadership, Transportation, Food, Climate Change, and Anaesthetic Gases.

Benefits of participating

The GHS supports hospitals by:

  • Providing facilities with an annual, personalized Scorecard to assess and communicate facilities' performance relative to their peers. A sample scorecard can be viewed HERE.
  • Offering the opportunity to be individually recognized through annual Gold, Silver and Bronze level achievements.
  • Encouraging excellence in environmental performance by honouring select participating organisations with annual Green Health Awards. Click HERE to review the recent award recipients.

The Survey

This year the GHS survey will be collecting data for the 2021 calendar year (January - December). If your organisation has multiple sites, a separate survey is required for each site, for each year. Please coordinate with your in-house team to ensure only one survey per hospital site is submitted each for 2021.

The survey link below is not unique. After opening the survey and completing the General Information section, click 'SAVE' at the bottom of the page. This will generate a personalized survey link which you can email to your self or copy and save. This link will allow you to resume and edit your survey, as well as share the survey with other members of your team. Anyone with the link can edit the survey.
