About Greening Mount Sinai

The Mount Sinai Health System is embarking on an exciting new program, Greening Mount Sinai.

Greening Mount Sinai is an institution-wide effort led by an interdisciplinary committee of physicians, nurses, medical students, and administrators. Current projects focus on:

  • Reducing waste
  • Expanding recycling
  • Decreasing the use of energy and water
  • Purchasing sustainable products
  • Educating faculty and staff on how to support these initiatives

Greening Mount Sinai enhances our medical center’s commitments to delivering outstanding clinical care, producing cutting-edge research, and offering innovative education. To accomplish these goals in a sustainable manner that respects the environment and protects human health, we have launched Greening Mount Sinai – a comprehensive initiative that seeks to implement and promote green programs throughout the medical center and in the communities we serve.

Our goal is to establish Mount Sinai as a national leader in environmental performance.
