Our Commitment to the Environment

We believe that healthy communities and a healthy environment are critical to the health and wellness of every person. That’s why we’re raising the bar on environmental responsibility through our Environmental Stewardship program. Anchored in the community benefit work our teams participate in, these efforts help us advance our mission and our vision for total health.

Through our seven environmental stewardship goals below, we will work together to create a future where total health is at the core of all that we do.

Kaiser Permanente's 2025 Environmental Stewardship Goals: Raising the Bar on Environmental Responsibility 
At Kaiser Permanente, we recognize that healthy communities and a healthy environment are critical to the health and wellness of every person. Creating these has always been central to our mission. 
Kaiser Permanente's Environmental Stewardship program is anchored in our community benefit work and embedded throughout our organization. Our environmental stewardship efforts help us advance our mission and our vision for total health — our approach that emphasizes the social, environmental, behavioral and clinical aspects that shape one's well being. 
Each of Kaiser Permanente's 2025 goals offers an opportunity to raise the bar on environmental responsibility, not just for Kaiser Permanente but for the broader social and economic sectors in the U.S. and globally. We hope they inspire us all to create a future where total health is at the core of all that we do. 
Climate Action - Become ‘carbon net positive’ by buying enough clean energy and carbon offsets to remove more greenhouse gases from the atmosphere than we emit. 
Sustainable Food - Buy all of our food locally or from farms and producers that use sustainable practices, including using antibiotics responsibly. 
Waste Reduction - Recycle, reuse or compost 100% of our non-hazardous waste. 
Water Conservation - Reduce the amount of water we use by 25% per square foot of buildings. 
Safer Products - Increase our purchase of products and materials meeting environmental standards to 50%. 
Management & Accountability - Meet international standards for environmental management at all of our hospitals.
