A healthcare organization’s Environmental Services department can play an important role in building a robust sustainability program. The presenter will highlight some of the steps Boston Medical Center has taken using its Environmental Services program as a stepping stone to creating a diverse sustainability program. The session will offer ideas that drive results, including how to get started, and applying some easy wins to build a robust environmentally conscious program that touches your entire organization. This program relies on other vendors to step up and become partners of change, i.e. EVS needs supply chain to assist in identifying vendors that can provide the level of service and products to meet the needs of a greening organization.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the role Environmental Services can play in building an effective sustainability program
  2. Build the framework for starting and sustaining an environmentally conscious healthcare community
  3. Utilize these environmental services programs to be role models in the healthcare community
  4. Discuss with supply chain their role in helping you identify suppliers who offer green products
  5. Initiate a plan for environmentally preferable purchasing for EVS-related products and services
