Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Climate change is one of the biggest human health hazards of our generation, according to the Surgeon General. Virginia Mason Memorial is advocating for smart climate change action, reducing our carbon emissions, and making sure we will be resilient to climate change impacts. From global climate talks to our local city meetings, we are speaking up to protect our patients and future generations from the impacts of climate change. We pledged to reduce our own carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2020.
