Athens Regional Medical Center has joined the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia, a state-sponsored voluntary environmental leadership initiative.
As a partner, Athens Regional will work to improve its current environmental efforts and identify potential cost saving measures, while at the same time helping to protect Georgia’s natural resources.
“In addition to our current environmentally-friendly efforts, we will continue to seek new and innovative ways to improve our environmental performance through conservation, purchasing, reduction, re-use and recycling programs,” said Bernard Wheatley, D.B.A., FACHE, vice president of operations at Athens Regional Medical Center.
By joining the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia, Athens Regional will become part of a group that leads by example, setting the standard for environmental excellence in Georgia.
Established in 2004, the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia fosters environmental leadership and recognizes superior environmental performance. Free and open to any business or organization in Georgia, it includes four partnership levels to fit the changing goals and environmental initiatives of the participants.For more information about the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia, visit www.Gasustainability.org.
