Date:3/16/2009

Program Will Help Healthcare Facilities Reduce Environmental Footprint

ARLINGTON, Va., March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Practice Greenhealth today announced a partnership with Johnson & Johnson to launch a sustainability research and training program within the U.S. health care sector. 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.

Johnson & Johnson, a Practice Greenhealth member, is providing resources for the program. The Company has been a leader in environmental sustainability since 1990, when it created its first environmental goals. Every five years, the Johnson & Johnson Company sets new long-term goals that help its companies reduce their environmental footprint.

"We are grateful for the support from Johnson & Johnson which is central to our delivery of the training and guidance health care facilities need," stated Bob Jarboe, Executive Director, Practice Greenhealth. "Over the next two years, they will support three separate components of the sustainability initiative: research; development and implementation of a training program; and design of evaluation mechanisms."

"Sustainability measures being taken by health facilities today will have a great impact on public health," stated Alphonse Iannuzzi, Senior Director, Worldwide Environment, Health & Safety, Johnson & Johnson. "We are pleased to support this important project which will help the health care community reduce its environmental footprint."

Practice Greenhealth's Sustainability Training Program is designed to encourage health care institutions to create Sustainability Coordinator/Green Team positions within their organizations and to provide the training and tools needed to assure their success. These staff are responsible for the coordination, direction and oversight of all components of their facility's sustainability efforts.
