CHI is a founding sponsor of one of the most important movements in health care sustainability - the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI), a nation wide campaign to increase environmental health and to make hospitals part of the solution to prevent environmental degradation.
CHI accepted three of the six challenges for hospitals - Engaged Leadership, Leaner Energy, and Healthier Food - making great strides in each. Now, CHI will continue this important work, as well as devote time and attention to reducing waste, smarter purchasing and the use of safer chemicals.

In caring for the environment, we show respect for those most vulnerable among us who are often most negatively affected by climate change, food insecurity and polluted environments.
