Data 101 Series: Transportation - Goals, Metrics & Toolkit
Recorded On: 08/30/2017
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Transportation as an industrial sector is the fastest growing and second leading contributor (26%) of US Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. As major employers in the community and because of their complex supply chain logistics, hospitals are positioned to lead efforts to reduce transportation GHGs by influencing employee commuting options, transitioning to low-emission fleet vehicle management, and scrutinizing supply chain distribution practices.
Introducing the Practice Greenhealth Transportation Toolkit! This Sharing Call will review the Practice Greenhealth Transportation Goals, identify key transportation performance metrics and data collection processes, and highlight available transportation resources. Gather your colleagues from Facilities, HR, Community Benefit, Occupational Health and Safety and consider the alignment of transportation improvement strategies with occupational, community, and environmental health.
