There are many opportunities for increasing sustainability of healthcare environments ranging from green building to greening facility operations, administrative practices, supply chain, and cafeterias.

This course will discuss the triple bottom line approach to greening supply chain, waste streams, and food service.  With the uniqueness of each healthcare facility and environments varying from administrative offices to sterile medical spaces, come specific challenges in creating sustainable environments.

The course will shed light on challenges in greening supply chains, waste streams, and food in a variety of healthcare environments.  Providing proof that a sustainability initiative was successful will help healthcare leadership buy into expanding the program or trying new sustainability efforts.

Simple Evidence Based Design practices will help show the value of a piloted sustainability program through measurable results.  How-to critical thinking exercises will help prepare attendees to bring sustainability into their line of work.

This course is intended for a broad audience ranging from healthcare administrators and practitioners to facilities employees and healthcare design professionals.
