ESG/Ethical Impact

Sustainability is commonly defined as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” The concept of sustainability in health care has many parallels with the dictum to “first do no harm.” UC San Diego Health holds Practice Greenhealth’s highest honor for hospitals, which is awarded to those that lead the industry in all-around sustainability performance. All aspects of human health are impacted by the environment. By supporting the environment in which we live, we help to protect the health of our patients and build a healthy future for the region. Promoting sustainability also aligns with our Health Equity goals. Underrepresented communities are often more vulnerable to the effects of climate change and environmental degradation. Issues such as poor air quality and water pollution, for example, tend to impact underrepresented communities disproportionately. All our sustainability efforts prioritize the health and safety of our patients. We focus on efforts that don’t compromise our dedication to delivering the highest level of care to every patient. Here are some of our ongoing efforts. Greening the OR Operating rooms generate 20% to 30% of a hospital’s total waste and consume three to six times more energy per square foot than the rest of a hospital on average. We’re in the process of designing and implementing strategies to reduce energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and waste generation in our operating rooms. This is a voluntary program in which clinics, offices, inpatient units and labs interested in sustainability work on key conservation areas, including moving to zero waste, carbon neutrality, water conservation and toxin reduction. The certification program also aims to foster a cultural shift in how we think about and treat the environment.
