Environmental sustainability is the responsibility for sound environmental stewardship shared by all those whose actions may impact the environment. Sustainability programs include:

In our daily work, we consume electricity, fuel, water, paper and office supplies, medical supplies, cleaning products and numerous other consumer goods. We are continually creating medical waste, hazardous wastes, garbage, pharmaceutical wastes, and electronic waste. When it comes to environmental sustainability, we all have a responsibility.
