Kaiser Permanente Launches Sustainability Scorecard for Medical Products
Date:5/4/2010

ealth.

Kaiser Permanente's current environmental policies already provide environmental guidelines for products ranging from greener cleaning chemicals to IV tubing free of potentially harmful chemicals. The Sustainability Scorecard goes further by requiring suppliers to provide information on their company's environmental commitment, use of potentially harmful chemicals in their products and information about product and packaging recycling.

"Kaiser Permanente is continually working to find environmentally friendly products, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and inform public policy to protect the health and safety of our workforce and members alike," said Kathy Gerwig, Kaiser Permanente's vice president for workplace safety and environmental stewardship officer. "With our Sustainability Scorecard, we are strengthening the link between sustainability and health."

Kaiser Permanente has a long history of environmental stewardship. The organization builds greener facilities, strives to purchase non-toxic materials and supports sustainable agriculture. For example, the organization has worked with suppliers to virtually eliminate the use of products and equipment that contain mercury, which is a neurotoxin. Last month, the organization announced it had agreed to deploy 15 megawatts of solar power in a deal that will put solar panels at 15 Kaiser Permanente facilities across the state by the summer of 2011.
