Energy management is a key pillar of a sustainable and climate resilient health facility. Facility engineers and energy managers play a critical role in ensuring empirical evidence is gathered to help support development and deployment of conservation and facility infrastructure initiatives. Learn how new Coalition-sponsored initiatives including the Green Hospital Scorecard are helping to reduce energy, while lowering carbon footprints and GHG emissions. Co-presenter will be a representative from an Ontario hospital that has received an exemplary score on the latest Green Hospital Scorecard challenge to discuss greening and resiliency successes.
