Here at BIDMC we believe that environmental responsibility is an integral part of high quality patient care and prevention.
In recent years, we have been recognized for the work we have been doing both locally and nationally:
While a committed leadership team can build systems, it is the combined effort and commitment of all of our employees that has enabled us to become more sustainable every day. Each year we recognize the work of a few such committed employees, naming them Environmental Champions.
BIDMC is focusing its work in a few key areas:
- Energy, water and fuel reduction
- Waste Reduction
- Eliminating hazardous chemicals
- Making environmental sustainability part of everyone's job description
