Understanding that climate change presents augmented risk factors for human health, we accept responsibility for the part we have played and commit to lowering our current and future impact.
As a member of the healthcare industry, which collectively contributes 8% of U.S. emissions due to 24/7 operations, we are proactively working to mitigate our part. Hence, we've formed an energy procurement and efficiency resource group to strategize on achieving long-term energy conservation and renewable energy goals. Concurrently, we are initiating numerous energy-saving and renewable-energy production projects across our system.
Energy Efficiency upgrades from past years have significantly reduced our annual electric consumption.
