  • Purchasing energy-efficient equipment: In 2008, all laptop and desktop computers and monitors newly deployed throughout Kaiser Permanente received at least a silver-rating by the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool.
  • Recycling electronics responsibly: Through a partnership with Redemtech, Kaiser Permanente either resold or recycled 74,000 pieces of Kaiser Permanente's electronic equipment in 2008.
  • Recycling construction debris: At the site of a new hospital in California, Kaiser Permanente construction crews recycled 100 percent of the building materials generated during the demolition of two warehouses.

  • The California Climate Action Registry was originally created by the State of California in 2001 to protect and promote companies' and organizations' early actions to calculate, report and manage their greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions reports are certified by independent third parties to ensure compliance with CCAR protocols and standardization across participants and sectors. Organizations that are willing to meet the accounting standards and third-party certification requirements show their serious intent to address climate change. CCAR has been widely recognized as a gold standard for public reporting of greenhouse gas emissions.

    "We are very pleased to recognize Kaiser Permanente for its climate change leadership and exemplary initiatives to manage its impact on the environment. By being a Climate Action Leader, it has demonstrated its commitment to voluntarily calculate and publicly report its greenhouse gas emissions according to the rigorous standards of the California Climate Action Registry," said Ga
