Sustainable Practices: My Green Doctor
My Green Doctor is the free environmental sustainability and climate change program offered by the Capital Medical Society. Offices and clinics learn to make gradual improvements in their uses of energy, water, chemicals, paper, and other resources. The program is easy to use, adding only five minutes of Green Team business to each regular staff meeting.
Most offices save money in their first month using My Green Doctor. It works for healthcare clinics, offices, and outpatient centers. One, five-office practice is saving $1,500 per doctor every year and reducing its greenhouse gases, with no financial investment.
Begin by the office manager and an interested psychiatrist registering at www.MyGreenDoctor.org. Everyone in the office can register. Next, the office commits to the goal of environmental sustainability and to adding Green Team business to each office meeting agenda. Each meeting is fully scripted in the “Meeting-by-Meeting Guide” so that there is nothing for the office manager or director to study or prepare. Offices can qualify for the Green Doctor Office Certificate from the Capital Medical Society within a few months.
My Green Doctor provides free brochures, posters, and other teaching tools to help helps share wise choices with patients and families. This can mean less energy and water used, cleaner air, fewer greenhouse gases, and better health outcomes.
