Ontario healthcare facilities reducing carbon footprint

November 29, 2017

Ontario is investing in its hospitals to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gases and redirect savings into patient care, according to an article on the Ontario News website.

In 2017, Ontario is funding 180 projects at 98 hospitals across the province, including 117 heating, ventiliation and air conditioning projects, 35 lighting projects and 28 projects that address other energy efficiency needs at hospitals. 

As a result of these and other improvements, almost five megatons of carbon dioxide equivalent gases are expected to be eliminated from the environment by 2050, the equivalent to taking about 40,000 vehicles off our roads. 

By 2020-21, it is estimated that more than $60 million will be generated in annual energy-related savings.
