2013 Environmental Performance Accountability Report (EPAR)
“On behalf of the Lower Mainland Health Organizations (LMHOs), I am very pleased to present the 2013 Environmental Accountability Report.
This report reflects the commitment of each of the LMHOs to environmental stewardship as established in their respective Energy and Environmental Sustainability (EES) policies. It outlines all of the EES activities being conducted on behalf of Fraser Health, Providence Health Care, the Provincial Health Services Authority, and Vancouver Coastal Health including progress against various goals and performance measures. The report shows how patients ultimately benefit from sound conservation initiatives and clearly demonstrates the commitment and accountability of the health sector to promote health in its broadest sense.
The link between environmental and ecological health is undeniable. Through practices that minimize environmental impact and reduce energy consumption and emissions, the LMHOs hope to improve the lives of all citizens we serve. With support from the EES team of Lower Mainland Facilities Management, the LMHOs look forward to continuing to implement initiatives that promote EES while simultaneously creating healthy, healing environments or our patients, visitors and staff.”
