We’re proud to be leading the first environmental sustainability strategy for the Victorian public health system.
Our strategy is a five-year commitment with three key strategic directions – sector leadership, environmental performance, and climate change planning – to further improve the environmental sustainability of our health system.
Where will we be in 2023? Over the next five years, we aim to:
Source at least five per cent of hospital electricity use from on-site solar
Reduce food waste and divert organics from landfill
Build sustainable and climate resilient facilities
Support best practice and innovation on sustainability in health
Educate and inform organisational boards and executives on sustainability and climate change
Voluntarily publish National Australian Built Environment Rating System ratings for hospitals.
