2016 Recipient: University Health Network

Since program inception in 1999, University Health Network (UHN) continuously strives to build a culture of environmental sustainability by focusing on energy efficiency, waste and toxic reduction, sustainable procurement, design, transportation, local food, and now climate change resiliency. Powered by the Energy & Environment Department, environmental stewardship is an embedded and ongoing process, not a one-time initiative.

UHN’s commitment to environmental stewardship goes beyond improving its own environmental performance. Members of Energy & Environment Department regularly share insights to help others achieve their environmental goals, and have chaired the Canadian Coalition for Green Healthcare.
