As more healthcare firms apply environmental sustainability to their daily operations (and consumers embrace the values of sustainability), the marketing of those achievements is becoming more relevant. This includes entering awards competitions that recognize the green efforts of healthcare organizations. Sponsored by Strategic Sustainability Consulting, Healthcare insight, and MD News, the GreenCare Awards is America’s leading recognition program for green initiatives in health care.
Here’s how they describe the awards on the GreenCare website:
“The GreenCare Awards annually highlights the nation’s leading hospitals, healthcare systems, and physician practices committed not only to caring for patients, but also to protecting the planet. By achieving excellence in environmentally friendly health care, GreenCare organizations are advancing the practice of medicine and improving the quality of patient care—now and for future generations.
From recycling and reducing waste to community education and LEED Certification®, recipients of the annual GreenCare Award are America’s healthcare organizations committed to environmental sustainability and stewardship of our planet’s natural resources.”
