Our environmental leadership

Big steps toward bigger goals

Kaiser Permanente is dedicated to protecting our shared environment — by the year 2025, we will:

  • Be “carbon net positive”
  • Buy all food locally or from sustainable producers
  • Recycle, reuse or compost 100 percent of non-hazardous waste
  • Reduce the amount of water we use by 25 percent
  • Increase purchases of environmentally friendly products
  • Meet international standards for environmental management
  • Help reduce risks to foodsheds, watersheds and air basins

Our work to achieve our goals is nonstop. In 2018, Practice Greenhealth recognized our continuing efforts with 14 Environmental Excellence Awards.
