2015 Carbon Neutral Action Reports are live!
For the sixth year in a row, Fraser Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health Care & Provincial Health Services Authority are carbon neutral! The 2015 Carbon Neutral Action Report is now out and the full reports can be downloaded below. They highlight some of the important actions each health organization took to reduce their carbon footprint in 2015.
Each year the various health authorities and affiliates in BC submit a Carbon Neutral Action Report (CNAR) to the Climate Action Secretariat of the BC government. This report documents our greenhouse gas emissions and the current and planned actions to further reduce GHG emissions in the future.
A Collaborative Effort
Many of the energy projects listed in these reports would not have been possible without the coordinated efforts of teams working together, and in collaboration with external stakeholders. Special thanks goes to the Energy Management teams and Facilities Management and Operations teams working in hospitals and health care facilities to make buildings more energy efficient and embed energy management principles further into standard operations. These projects have positive impacts; saving energy, decreasing air pollution, and ultimately adding to the health and wellness of facilities, workplaces and the communities we serve.
