We embed sustainable practices and projects into everything we do.
Our Sustainability Strategy finds ways to
- reduce water and energy use
- increase recycling
- adapt to climate change - for example, by preparing for more asthma storm events and heat wave days
This helps us reduce the environmental impact of health care.
Our low-maintenance gardens with shady trees and shrubs improve our microclimate and wellbeing. We use indigenous and other drought-resistant plants. These don't need watering and provide a home for native birds and insects.
We add more insulation to our buildings where we can. This keeps the temperature inside more comfortable, and reduces energy use.
