Greening Health Care
Greening Health Care is the largest program of its kind in North America, helping hospitals work together to lower their energy costs, raise their environmental performance and contribute to the health and well-being of their communities. Members manage data, assess their performance and track savings using a powerful online system. They share knowledge and best practices through workshops, webinars and networking to help plan, implement and verify improvements. This is a program of The Living City managed by Toronto and Region Conservation.
