Three personal membership groups of the American Hospital Association (AHA)—the American Society for Healthcare Engineering, the Association for the Healthcare Environment, and the American Society for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management—have teamed up to provide their members and others in the health care community access to information and tools that can help reduce the environmental footprint of health care facilities.

The three groups have produces a Web site called the Sustainability Roadmap for Hospitals, which provides background material, sample action plans target-setting and tracking tools, and suggestions for health care organizations to improve their sustainability efforts.

This site serves as a complement to the AHA’s Executive Primer on Hospital Environmental Sustainability.
