The partnership aims to prepare professionals at hospitals and other health care facilities to reduce environmental impacts and develop sustainable operations at their facilities.

Practice Greenhealth, the nation's leading organization for healthcare organizations committed to sustainable practices, has developed tools and programs to help health facilities develop more sustainable operations, including programs in clean energy, environmental purchasing, waste management, and chemical reduction.
