Report-Boston Health Care Energy Profile-May 2017

This report summarizes an analysis of more than 24,000 energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) records covering 22 million square feet of metro Boston hospitals, in an update to our 2011-2013 first-in-the-nation, metro sector-wide database. Developed for the Boston Green Ribbon Commission's Health Care Working Group (GRC-HC) by its coordinator, Health Care Without Harm, the data tracks the sector's collective progress towards the GRC's shared goals of a 25 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, and 100 percent by 2050.
