B.C. health authority capital projects go green

Health authorities have begun work on 23 new capital projects on their mission to save on energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through funding provided by the Carbon Neutral Capital program, which was established in 2012. The projects are expected to reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by more than 3,600 tonnes and save the health authorities more than $950,000 in energy costs annually. The program will be continuing in 2015-16 due to overwhelming successes in both cost savings and emission reduction.
