Triple Play: Energy, Waste, and Greener Pastures

Triple Play: Energy, Waste, and Greener Pastures A three-pronged strategy is outlined in GreenBiz to guide the healthcare sector toward greater cost-efficiency, enhanced patient experience, and meaningful environmental stewardship. Profit margins have increased for industry leaders who invest in new energy technologies, green their supply chains, and trim waste production. Private and government-run facilities in the U.S. are taking advantage of tax incentives and grants to install wind and solar energy systems. Single use device reprocessing and environmentally preferred purchasing policies remove carbon and toxins from supply chains. Cost and environmental savings also stem from electronic waste recycling and measures to purge hazardous constituents from waste streams.
