GLRPPR Sector Resource: Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E)

Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E)

The primary goal of the H2E effort is to educate health care professionals about pollution prevention opportunities in hospitals and health care systems. Through activities, such as the development of best practices, model plans for total waste management, resource directories, and case studies, the project hopes to provide hospitals and health care systems with enhanced tools for minimizing the volumes of waste generated and the use of persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemicals. The H2E web site is an extensive resource for the health care sector, including resources and tools related to mercury, waste reduction, chemicals and pollution prevention, green buildings, green purchasing, technical resources and other topics.
