GGHH is pleased to announce an exciting new resource available to members, the Practice Greenhealth Anesthetic Gas How-to Guide. The guide provides a wealth of information for health care institutions to understand and reduce the carbon footprint of their anesthetic gas use.

The Practice Greenhealth Anesthetic Gas How-to guide provides resources and strategies to assist members to:

  • Understand how to make the case for focusing on anesthetic gases from an environmental, financial, and human health perspective
  • Assess current practices, gather data, and develop a baseline
  • Establish and commit to a reduction goal
  • Identify opportunities and strategies
  • Educate and engage staff

While the focus audience for this guide is U.S. health care facilities, the information and resources can be useful to members around the world.

Learn about strategies and approaches to reduce the carbon footprint of anesthetic gas use and track the progress of your organization with the anesthetic gas impact calculator available in the Hippocrates Data Center.
