Environmental Initiatives

Here at BIDMC we believe that environmental responsibility is an integral part of high quality patient care and prevention.

We have been recognized for the work we have been doing both locally and nationally:


The direction and progress of our sustainability work is overseen by a committee of over  25 managers.  The day to day implementation is handled by our fulltime Sustainability Program Manager.

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, and outfitting them with green fleece vests.

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
