Want to Bring your Green Values to Work?
Green+Leaders (G+L) are staff volunteers who help create healthy workplaces on a healthy planet by improving environmental performance of health care operations across the Lower Mainland.
What do Green+Leaders do?
- Act as role models for environmental sustainability
- Encourage behaviour change among their coworkers
- Help improve processes and create a culture of environmental health and wellness throughout
Green+Leaders benefit from:
- Training, tools and leadership development
- A supportive community of like-minded colleagues
- Participation in inspiring and educational events
- A chance to have a positive impact on their workplace and their community
How it works
There are more than 250 Green+Leaders working in all areas of health care, across the four Lower Mainland Health Organizations.
The Green+Leaders program focuses on behaviour change campaigns in four key areas:
- Zero Waste (formerly Materials Reduction)
- Energy Conservation & Climate Neutral
- Active & Clean Transportation
- Culture of Stewardship & Social Sustainability
Green+Leader activities include:
- Modeling new behaviours for others to adopt
- Providing colleagues with information and support for sustainability initiatives
- Posting prompts in the workplace, such as posters and stickers, to help create sustainable habits
- Helping co-workers to identify green alternatives
The Green+Leaders Program champions the enthusiasm and ideas of Lower Mainland Health Organization staff while also:
- Capturing eco-efficiencies at the unit level in the key areas of waste, energy, transportation and culture of stewardship
- Achieving our LEAN goals of reducing waste
- Achieving our HR staff engagement goals of improving employee health and satisfaction at work.
Environmental sustainability & health care
Green+Leaders are integral to the ongoing commitment of each health organization to take responsibility for the environmental impact of the health sector in British Columbia. Read the sustainabiltiy policies here.
