Aspirus Sustainability Initiative: Our Results So Far

new flower

This Earth Day (April 22), we’re thrilled to announce that since Aspirus began our coordinated and strategic sustainability initiative in 2018, we’ve so far reduced our carbon emissions by 10,370 MtCo2 and our energy use by $650,677.

We’ve:

  • Been pursuing energy conservation (LED lighting, reducing fan and pump speeds, scheduling systems for optimization, and more) across our hospitals.
  • Planted vertical gardens to grow food locally through an organic, hydroponic process.
  • Begun transitioning our fleet vehicles to alternative fuel (including electric vehicles).
  • Installed nearly a Megawatt of rooftop solar panels to generate and use renewable energy.
  • And much more.
