In the U.S., hospitals rank highest in water intensity and second-highest in energy intensity of all commercial building types, and the health care industry contributes to 8% of greenhouse gas emissions. The World Health Organization declared climate change to be the greatest threat to public health. In 2016, air pollution took around 7 million lives worldwide. Health care organizations across the globe are making commitments and taking action to reduce the environmental impact of their facilities and improve the health of the communities they serve.
Join this session to learn how the Living Building Challenge, the world’s most rigorous green building standard, could be applied to reach new heights in human and environmental health outcomes in health care projects.
- Explore how the Living Building Challenge philosophy aligns with the fundamental values of the health care industry
- Engage in an interactive discussion on how the Living Building Challenge can be adapted to the health care context
- Explain the structure and certification process, and how the Living Building Challenge can be applied to your next health care project
- Discover how to use the Living Community Challenge as a launching pad for community collaboration to improve population health
