Culture of Stewardship & Social Sustainability

Culture of Stewardship within GreenCare and the LM Health Organizations means building staff capacity and leadership to integrate sustainability values into all decision-making and actions at work.

Goal 
Integrate the environmental impact of health care operations and its connection to the health of populations into decision-making priorities, workplace practices and organizational values across the Lower Mainland Health Care Organizations (LMHOs).
Targets 
Using the PROSCI ADKAR model, we have developed the following targets under the culture change focus area:
 
  • Support overall awareness of energy and environmental sustainability best practises by maintaining a specific number of posted good news stories (Awareness & Reinforcement)
  • Increase the number of staff directly trained in energy and environmental sustainability workplace practices (Knowledge)
     
  • Support innovation and organizational improvement through the funding of staff initiated green sustainability projects (Desire & Ability)
 
What is the ADKAR Model?
 
The PROSCI ADKAR Model is a goal-oriented change management model that guides individual and organizational change. Created by Prosci founder Jeff Hiatt, ADKAR is an acronym that represents the five tangible and concrete outcomes that people need to achieve for lasting change - Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability, Reinforcement.

a. Build and maintain capacity to run and expand Green+Leaders program;

b. Maintain and enhance the GreenCare Community website;

c. Investigate capacity building for management and senior executives;
