The NYC Carbon Challenge for Hospitals

New York City's 11 largest hospital organizations accepted the NYC Carbon Challenge in 2009, which include 41 individual hospitals and dozens of clinics and outpatient centers. Since then, the participating hospitals have achieved a 12% reduction in carbon emissions per square foot, demonstrating their commitment to improve public health and quality of life for all New Yorkers. Moreover, these hospitals are now reinvesting the millions of dollars they are saving in lower energy costs into the patient care and research that helps save lives.
