The path to environmental excellence cannot be reached without a relentless attention to detail that tracks progress and maintains accountability every step of the way. Third-party standards, such as those put forward by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), can help by providing objective targets and points of comparison with other like-minded organizations striving for similar goals.
Our 2025 goal: Meet international standards for environmental management at all of our hospitals.
Kaiser Permanente recognizes that we must formalize our management systems at each of our hospitals in order to move beyond incremental gains in environmental performance. That is why we have committed to managing our progress by meeting the rigorous environmental management standards of ISO 14001. This will help us build upon our strong record for environmental stewardship and compliance.
