Kaiser Permanente has certified its greenhouse gas emissions inventory with the California Climate Action Registry, becoming the first health care organization to be tagged as a Climate Action Leader, according to Kaiser. The organization is now publicly reporting its 2006 GHG emissions under the Registry program.In addition to participating in the Registry’s program, Kaiser Permanente has created greenhouse gas emissions programs of its own. According to Kaiser Permanente, the organization’s Southern California trip-reduction program has resulted in annual avoidance of 15 million pounds of CO2 emissions by employees commuting to work. In its Northern California region, Kaiser estimates energy savings initiatives at 19 facilities have reduced total CO2 emissions by more than 2 million pounds so far this year, and are expecting to reduce CO2 emissions overall by the end of the year.
