Sustainability Council

The goal of the Sustainability Council is to drive environmentally focused, sustainable projects and practices across the system. This includes identifying and promoting activities or improvements that impact the environment that we, our patients, and our communities live in.

What is the Sustainability Council currently working on?
LifeBridge Health is hoping to roll out its first major project, the Green Certification, to link in with the system Print Redux program. In addition to driving activities around this project, other opportunities include:

  • Expanded access to local and sustainable foods
  • Diverted recycling from landfills or incineration
  • Conserved energy consumption
  • Internal and external mission engagement

Does your department have a Sustainability Champion?
We’re looking for champions to represent their departments in Sustainability Council activities and drive department-wide activities. This includes:

  • Spreading awareness of the mission
  • Identifying opportunities within your department
  • Coordinating activities with your department’s leadership
  • Engaging colleagues in the various programming activities your department takes on through the Certification program
  • Representing and reporting on successes and barriers to the Council
  • Periodically joining Sustainability Council meetings

Contact dmeltzer@lifebridgehealth.org to become a champion within your department.
