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.
