What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
Counties Manukau Health adopted a more rounded approach to sustainability in 2012 by incorporating social and environmental aspects to the term practising sustainable healthcare. Many of our programmes of work incorporate these elements in conjunction with incorporating carbon reduction targets. We have successfully implemented organisation wide recycling systems and set up green teams in a range of clinical areas. Green teams have proven to be successful as they identify problems within their spheres of influence, engage with team members, become advocates and change agents who foster sustainability and sustainable change.
