Sustainable Initiatives at Partners
As a health care leader in the Boston area, Partners recognizes its responsibility to lead by example and because of that has launched a sustainability initiative to reduce our impact on the environment.
The sustainabilility program operates on two levels. The first, cooperation with peer hospitals across the country. The second is implementation of projects at the local level. These projects are initiatives that often come from employee ideas—everything from recycling blue wrap, the materials that wrap surgical instruments for operating rooms, to replacing botteled water with filtered tap water on patient floors—and disseminating these ideas throughout the Partners system.
