How To Use This Site

You've joined the GreenCare Community because you want to make a positive change. We know as health care providers, you care about the health and wellbeing of the people you serve - now you have the opportunity to extend that care to the environment around you. 

--------------------------------------------------------

Make it real.  

Think about the sustainability behaviours and actions that could take place in the real world – whether they’re at home, at work or in your community - and then post your ideas, suggestions and solutions here. 

Play nice.

The GreenCare Community is an extension of your workplace, so be sure to act in the same professional manner here as you do in your physical place of work. The same respectful workplace and patient confidentiality rules apply here on the GreenCare Community site. See GreenCare's Community Rules.

Our goal. 

The goal of the GreenCare Community is to show that individual actions can have great cumulative impact against climate change. Yes, that’s right: it’s about a critical mass making positive change.

Our commitment. 

Quite simply, the GreenCare Community helps the employees of Fraser Health Authority, Providence Health Care, Provincial Health Services Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health to collectively demonstrate a commitment to our responsibilities under the BC Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act.

One common platform.

The GreenCare Community provides a single platform for you to connect with colleagues across British Columbia and to discuss GreenCare topics of interest including: energy, water, food and human health, travel, green buildings and materials and waste. 

Have an idea or a suggestion as to how we can make positive change within the Health Authorities? Post it here.
