practicegreenhealthPractice Greenhealth and Johnson & Johnson have launched a sustainability research and training program for the U.S. healthcare sector. The partnership is targeted at helping hospitals and other healthcare facilities to reduce their environmental impacts and develop sustainable operations.

Over the next two years, Johnson & Johnson, a Practice Greenhealth member, will support three components  research, development and implementation of a training program and design of evaluation mechanisms — of the sustainability initiative.

Practice Greenhealth, a leading organization for healthcare organizations, offers tools and programs to help health facilities develop more sustainable operations including programs in clean energy, environmental purchasing, waste management, and chemical reduction.

Supporting Practice Greenhealth’s environmental program strategies, a new report “The Engaged Organization,” from the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), looked at environmental education at Wal-Mart, Johnson & Johnson, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco and others. The study shows that the best way toward better environmental sustainability in an organization is by engaging the entire company’s workforce.
