Organization Mission

We provide an active vehicle for enabling positive ecological change within the Canadian health care landscape.

Organization Description

The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care (CCGHC - the Coalition) is an alliance of committed Canadian health service organisations, associations and environmentally focused business associates that promotes the adoption of environmentally friendly and sustainable health care service delivery to complement the compassionate delivery of health care. We are a nationally incorporated not-for-profit organisation.

We encourage the adoption of resource conservation, pollution prevention principles and effective environmental management systems to reduce the Canadian health care sys­tem’s ecological impact while protecting human health.

The Coalition collaborates with health care organisations, facilities, and professionals, governments and non-governmental organisations, the private sector and others to raise awareness of this issue and to increase the capacity of the health care sector to address its environmental issue
