Please Complete the Online Sustainability Survey by 6 p.m., February 10

Sustainability is a bulky word for a simple concept: Are we doing our best to be good shepherds of our resources?  

Sustainability is about waste reduction, recycling, energy conservation, environmental protection — and it is about much, much more.

Being sustainable (as an individual or as an organization) means using resources wisely and engaging in actions that are environmentally friendly, socially responsible and financially cost effective to benefit present and future generations of people.

Sustainability is one more way members of the Methodist family can live The Meaning of Care. We are in the process of identifying and implementing greater sustainability efforts throughout Methodist Health System, and we need your help and input.

I ask every MHS employee to complete our short online Sustainability Survey by 6 p.m., Wednesday, February 10.

The anonymous survey, with questions about your experiences and opinions regarding sustainability at MHS, takes about 5 minutes to complete. To take the survey, click here
