As a health care provider, Methodist recognizes that risks to our planet are also risks to our communities and our health.

That’s why Methodist has taken action in recent years to become more sustainable by conserving water, reducing waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions from building energy use and employee commuting, and more.

Right now, Methodist is engaging a variety of people across the organization in a process to identify the most effective ways we can reduce our emissions over the coming years. This Net Zero Pathway (NZP) analysis will help us understand what changes we need to make to limit our impact on the environment and contribute to the global effort to reach net zero.


What You Can Do

In order to successfully serve our patients and protect our communities from the impacts of climate change, we’ll all need to work together to strive for a safer environment. There are a number of ways you can get involved:

  • Download the employee sustainability toolkit from the intranet Sustainability page
  • On the intranet Sustainability page, you can also learn more about the Sustainable Health Implementation Plan (SHIP) program and sign up to be an ambassador.
  • Attend the next quarterly State of Sustainability meeting on Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. These meetings are open to anyone from across the system who is interested in learning more about sustainability and sharing ideas. Sign up to be an ambassador to be automatically invited, or let us know you’re interested by emailing @email.
  • Read more about our goals and view our progress on the sustainability dashboard
  • Look out for upcoming opportunities to participate this fall, like the rollout of Methodist’s sustainable commuting program!
