Fostering a culture of collaborative leadership and innovation for environmental sustainability in health care presents an opportunity for better health outcomes for patients and staff. Further, when individuals in the workplace lead by example and inspire others to do the same, it leads to greater success across the organization.

GreenCare helps to bring together leaders — whether they are direct-care staff, corporate team members and/or executives — and supports them in creating a more engaged and motivated workplace where values are shared and appreciated. The Green+Leaders program, a network of health-care staff who participate in projects and initiatives to advance sustainability across the Lower Mainland health organizations, is a key part of environmental sustainability leadership and innovation.

Goals and impact

  • Reach, engage and inspire health-care staff to be leaders who share a commitment to and passion for sustainable and thriving communities, workplaces and environments.
  • Work collaboratively to develop innovative sustainability solutions in health care.
  • Build capacity among senior leadership and policy-makers to prioritize sustainability in health care.
