Green Leadership


The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care is Canada’s premier integrated green health care resource network; a national voice and catalyst for environmental change. We believe that Green Leadership is essential to providing the health sector with the knowledge and means needed to achieve environmental improvement and sustainability.

We encourage the adoption of resource conservation, pollution prevention principles and effective environmental management systems to reduce the Canadian health care system’s ecological impact while protecting human health and encouraging environmental sustainability initiatives. Since 2001, we have developed many innovative partnerships with public and private sector support, including numerous projects with Canadian universities, that have positively impacted the environment in the adoption of local sustainable foods, reduction of toxics, improved waste management, environmentally preferred purchasing protocols, energy conservation, and more.
