About GreenCare

 

THE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY TEAM

The Energy and Environmental Sustainability Team (EES) is a service line of the Lower Mainland Facilities Management Unit, serving four health care organizations in British Columbia's Lower Mainland: Fraser Health, Providence Health Care, Provincial Health Services Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health.

Lead by the EES Team, the GreenCare Community is an umbrella for a wide range of energy and environmental sustainability strategies, programs and projects to reduce the environmental impact of health care operations and improve the resiliency of health care facilities and human and environmental health.

The table below gives an overview of the EES Team Members:
