Take Action for Green Building and Leaner Energy

Enroll your hospital in the HHI Leaner Energy or Less Waste Challenges!

The Healthier Hospitals Initiative is a call to action for hospitals to implement sustainability and environmental health innovations. By taking one of the six HHI Challenges, hospitals receive mentorship, how-to-guides, case-studies, a peer-to-peer learning forum, tracking tools, and support on targeted goals.

The Less Waste Challenge asks hospitals to implement a construction and demolition debris recycling program for major renovations and new construction to achieve at least 80 percent recycle and diversion rate.

The Leaner Energy Challenge asks hospitals to reduce greenhouse gases by decreasing weather-adjusted energy intensity from metered energy use by three, five, or ten percent from baseline.
