Gundersen Health System's energy plan is providing leadership for the healthcare industry on a journey to demonstrate that "green" is a healthy, socially responsible and economically beneficial strategy. Our specific plans turn good intentions and "green" theory into action.
- We will meet 100 percent of our energy needs for our facilities in 2014 by improving energy efficiency and creating renewable energy.
- We will commit to environmentally and economically sustainable business practices such as LEED certification of new buildings.
- We will partner with communities to encourage sustainable economic growth and development as well as provide national leadership in renewable energy and energy efficiency programs.
- We will use our Envision program as a tool to reduce the cost of care for our patients.
Through our Envision program, Gundersen Health System is implementing a number of projects to meet 100 percent of our energy needs for our facilities in 2014. The projects will create renewable energy and improve energy efficiency. The environmental plan will evolve and change as we learn more about the technologies that are available.
