The International Federation of Healthcare Engineering (IFHE), with support from the Association of Medical Facility Professionals (AMFP) and Mazzetti, has launched its first-ever Global Healthcare Energy Awards. The awards aim to encourage healthcare facilities around the world to commit to a reduction in energy use that will ultimately lessen the entire global health system’s intensive carbon footprint, all through a simple energy tracking process.
Any healthcare facility with a 5% or greater energy reduction, measured from 2019 as the energy usage baseline and 2021 as the performance year, will be eligible for recognition as a Global Healthcare Energy Winner. “Best in Country” winners and the “Best in World” winner will be recognized during IFHE’s Annual Congress September 17-21, 2022, in Toronto, Canada.
“We’ve designed the process (and tools) to be as simple as possible to help more healthcare facilities better understand their available energy data and the value it offers,” comments Walt Vernon, PE, CEO of Mazzetti, Vice President of AMFP, and IFHE Executive Committee Member. “As healthcare facilities professionals take charge of this data, they gain stronger insight into how even small actions can save their organizations money and dramatically improve the care they provide their patients, staff, and communities.”
“IFHE is thrilled to celebrate its members success on this global platform. With every entry, we hope to inspire more organizations to join this movement toward creating a healthier, more sustainable future for us all,” says Darryl Pitcher, CEO of Bethsalem Care in Australia and Past President of IFHE.
