Sharing Call: Measuring Sustainability Performance with Practice Greenhealth


As hospitals' environmental stewardship programs grow and evolve, sustainability leaders are looking for ways to measure sustainability performance. And as sustainability programs face the same financial scrutiny as other programs across the organization—it becomes even more important to be able to tell the organization's sustainability story with data, and substantiate its value.

Practice Greenhealth has been leading a dialogue about sustainability performance measurement, and has identified a set of sector-wide environmental performance metrics. This sharing call will introduce you to the set of integrated performance reports that Practice Greenhealth provides to award-winners and will also highlight key takeaways from the 2015 Sustainability Benchmark Report.

Come to this call and learn how these performance reports can help your organization define its goals, identify year-to year performance trends and understand how your organization performs relative to other high-achieving hospitals. And share your ideas and questions with Practice Greenhealth's Sector Performance team.
