Ten Years of driving sustainable practices in products, services and day-to-day operations.
Mazzetti celebrates its tenth consecutive year receiving Practice Greenhealth’s “Champion for Change” Award. This award recognizes companies that supply the healthcare sector, who have not only taken steps to improve the organization’s green practices, but have also gone the extra mile to help clients and associates expand their sustainable practices.
Mazzetti’s 2015 Highlights:
As a part of our 2015 environmental goals, Mazzetti successfully deployed the following:
– Internal training and knowledge-sharing to improve sustainability understanding across the company.
– Four volunteer solar installations with GRID Alternatives, a nonprofit organization bringing the benefits of solar technology to communities that would not otherwise have access. Mazzetti completed 176 volunteer hours, installing 11.36 kW of solar, preventing 255 tons of carbon emission.
– Aggressive goals toward greening Mazzetti specifications, improving messaging about sustainability, and tracking the efforts.
Mazzetti continues to help drive ASHE’s Energy to Care program, a free energy benchmarking and awards program for healthcare facility management professionals to provide value back into patient care through energy savings. Contact Scott Wallace for more information.
“It’s an honor to be featured as a Champion for Change for 10 consecutive years! Celebrating our successes inspires us to continue to improve upon our sustainability efforts for the following year. Every year, participating in the Champion for Change award process is a valuable way for us to reflect on efforts made the previous year and discover how we can continue to improve. Thank you to Practice Greenhealth for the opportunity to engage our employees and the public around the important mission of integrating sustainability in our everyday work.”
