Welcome to GreenCare!

B.C.’s health-care network
for environmentally sustainable
and resilient care

Why GreenCare?

Climate change and its associated environmental and human health problems are our current global reality — a reality that we must all take action to address.

Health care contributes to and is impacted by our climate reality. By understanding and finding solutions to challenges that include energy and carbon emissions, material waste, water management, chemical use and/or transportation, there is much that we can all do to achieve better health and well-being for our environment, patients, staff and communities.

What is GreenCare?

A network founded by the Energy and Environmental Sustainability team, GreenCare unites efforts across the B.C. health-care community to transform our health-care system toward environmentally sustainable and resilient care for healthy people, place and planet.

Connecting and supporting diverse individuals and groups in the Lower Mainland health organizations, GreenCare amplifies and celebrates projects, programs and staff that advance environmental sustainability solutions in health-care delivery and population health. The GreenCare website acts as a home and resource to support these efforts.

Energy & Environmental Sustainability Team’s purpose

To inspire and empower all we work with to collaboratively enable systemic transformation so that we can restore and regenerate the interdependent health of people and planet — now and for future generations.
