Green Health Leaders’ Initiative

A project of the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care

The Green Health Leaders’ Initiative supports key senior leaders, specifically health care board members, executives, medical staff and policy-makers, with a desire to:

  • Move their organisations to a new level of environmental stewardship
  • Expand their knowledge of environmental best practice
  • Share information and environmental performance data
  • Better understand innovative solutions and how to overcome barriers to change

Green Health Leaders Forum
Green Health Leaders are change catalysts through:

  • Making strategic commitments for an environmentally-sustainable health system
  • Empowering staff to take appropriate action
  • Becoming ambassadors for this initiative

Green Hospital Scorecard
The Green Hospital Scorecard is an environmental performance measurement and benchmarking dashboard that provides a quick snapshot of an organisation’s environmental performance.

Green Health Leaders+
This ‘hands on’ help provides mentorship and coaching to senior leaders and works with the organisation’s Green Leadership Committee. Guidance is provided to identify gaps, help develop action plans, and establish key performance indicators and benchmarking opportunities through external accountability.
