A brief description of the hospital’s sustainability initiatives:
Emory's Sustainability Vision and goals include both the University and Emory Healthcare, therefore all initiatives and goals are pursued in all of Emory's 5 major hospitals, 3 major clinics, and numerous outlying facilities. Particular efforts in waste reduction, energy use reduction, sustainable and local food procurement, and sustainable purchases are ongoing. Emory Healthcare signed the Healthy Food in Healthcare Pledge in 2011, and joined the HHI Less Waste and Leaner Energy Challenges in 2014. Emory University Hospital Midtown committed to a 20% reduction in energy and water use by 2020 as part of the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge.
