Environmental sustainability strategy released

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.
