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


BIDMC meets all applicable environmental laws, regulations and environmental commitments through employee engagement, community partnerships and innovative solutions.

In recent years, we have been recognized for the work we have been doing both locally and nationally:

  • 2017 Practice Greenhealth Emerald Award
  • 2017 Practice Greenhealth Greening the Operating Room Recognition Award
  • 2016 EPA Food Recovery Challenge Award
  • 2016 Massachusetts ECO Pinnacle Award for Excellence in Commuter Options
  • 2016 Silver Bike Friendly Business Award

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.
