Purpose of the GreenCare Survey
The Energy and Environmental Sustainability Team (EES) has developed and distributed the GreenCare Survey, formerly known as the Future of Environment in Health Care Survey and the You and the Environment Survey, to staff of the four Lower Mainland health organizations (Fraser Health, Providence Health Care, Provincial Health Services Authority, and Vancouver Coastal Health) since 2010. The biennial survey has been distributed six times over the past ten years (2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2019, and 2021).
The intention of this survey has been to measure success of programs and initiatives, to understand staff knowledge of and priorities surrounding environmental issues, and to act as an engagement tool, both with staff as well as leadership. EES uses this survey to collect metrics for one of the Active and Clean Transportation Performance Indicators.
2021 survey results
This year, we received 393 responses from Vancouver Coastal Health staff to the GreenCare survey.
