In support of the company’s efforts to reduce energy use 15 percent by year-end 2015, also against a 2010 baseline, DaVita Kidney Care’s environmentally focused team, Village Green, launched a building management system pilot to over 130 clinics in the Northwest to increase comfort and reduce energy use.
