Our Green Initiatives

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


We meet all applicable environmental laws, regulations and environmental commitments through employee engagement, community partnerships and innovative solutions. We strive to continually improve our environmental performance by balancing economic viability with environmental responsibility. Our mission is to create a healthy future for our patients, their families and ourselves.

BIDMC is fostering a culture of sustainability through:

  • Energy and water conservation programs
  • Proper waste management
  • Responsible procurement of surgical and medical supplies
  • Local and sustainable foods
  • Green commuting options for employees
  • Climate resilience infrastructure

In recent years, we have been recognized locally and nationally for our green efforts.
