How Should Hospitals Respond to Climate Change? Since hospital buildings are more energy intensive than most, is it a realistic goal for healthcare institutions to become “carbon neutral”? What does it mean? What does it cost? And what strategy should you use to get there?
This presentation given by Clark Reed- Director of the Healthcare Division for ENERGY STAR at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) discusses how hospitals can profitably address climate change by increasing the efficiency of existing buildings, designing new high performance facilities, and purchasing clean renewable power. It presents case studies of low-carbon hospitals; share examples of ways hospitals can measure carbon emissions, and receive national recognition for superior energy performance.
