Facilitating Carbon Reporting for a Large Healthcare System

The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, or Assembly Bill (AB) 32 passed in CA, providing framework for carbon reporting with the intent of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. St. Joseph Health system (SJHS), with 15 campuses and 232 buildings spread across 5.5 million sf, saw an opportunity to be proactive and understand its own carbon footprint.

Collecting, Analyzing, Reporting, SAVING

Mazzetti collaborated with SJHS to collect data regarding all direct and indirect GHG emissions; analyzed GHG emissions for source and impact; reported GHG emissions to the California Climate Action Registry (one of the first healthcare organizations to do so); and assisted in obtaining certification of the measurements by an independent verifier.
