ASHE Sustainability Guide

The question “How do I get started?” is always top of mind when facilities managers venture down the sustainability road. The ASHE Sustainability Guide was developed to provide step-by-step directions for developing and executing a sustainability program for your health care facility. Whether embarking on a new journey or solidifying an established effort, the following guidance will help define a path to sustainability. The Sustainability Monograph provides comprehensive guidance on establishing a green team, creating an energy management plan, completing a greenhouse gas emissions inventory, executing efficiency measures, addressing other aspects of sustainability, developing a measurement and verification protocol, creating an operations and maintenance training plan, and educating, promoting successes and celebrating achievements; all with the unique aspect of health care facilities in mind.

Why isn’t this available in print? In support of our Energy to Care program and global sustainability, ASHE is reducing print offerings for certain publications. Questions may be directed to Senior Publications Specialist Eliana Munro at
