HCA Sustainability Plan
HCA is a responsible and concerned citizen of all communities where it operates. Therefore, the minimum standard for HCA’s environmental stewardship is meeting or exceeding all environmental legal and regulatory standards. In addition, HCA will protect and preserve the environment through, at a minimum, the following practices:
- HCA will encourage the recycling of materials where recycling is commercially practical and the minimization, consistent with the law, of waste streams which require additional processing.
- HCA facilities will consider the effect on the indoor environment before introducing a new product into the facility.
- HCA will encourage the continued reduction of energy usage throughout its facilities.
- HCA will evaluate, and where appropriate, incorporate environmentally- preferable alternatives when designing new construction and major renovations.
