The NYC Carbon Challenge for Hospitals

In 2009, New York City's 9 largest hospital organizations accepted the NYC Carbon Challenge, which include more than 41 individual hospitals and dozens of clinics and outpatient centers. Since then, the participating hospitals have achieved a 15 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per square foot, saving millions of dollars and demonstrating their commitment to improve public health and quality of life for all New Yorkers. In addition, one hospital has already met the 30 percent goal.
