Canadian Hospitals are Looking a Little Green

The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care has won Gold in Climate Leadership for 2016, for its development of the Health Care Climate Change Resiliency Toolkit.

This prize comes from Global Green and Healthy Hospitals, which challenges hospitals and health care facilities to commit to protecting public health from climate change. In order to participate in the challenge, facilities sign a pledge based around three pillars: 1) mitigation through reducing health care’s carbon footprint; 2) resilience by preparing for weather impacts and disease, and 3) leadership through education and promotion of policies.
