Floods, wildfires and other extreme weather events have forced hospital closures, damaged infrastructure and impacted patient care and business continuity. Clearly, hospitals need to build resiliency and integrate climate action into their operations. But how can you become a “Green Hospital”?

This presentation will discuss the 5 pillars of a green hospital plan. It will also provide an overview of some of the initiatives that hospitals have taken to bring them to the forefront of action for the environment to become leading examples for others. Various tools that can help hospitals along this path will also be discussed.
