We undertook a number of projects last year to achieve 8,500 GJ of natural gas savings, bringing our overall savings to 59,000 GJ since we began working closely with FortisBC in 2010.</div><div><br>“The environmental impact from health care facilities, operations, and services affects the health of the populations and patients we are meant to serve,” said Mauricio Acosta, Director of Facilities Management, Lower Mainland Facilities Management, VCH. “Health care is in a position to take the first step, mitigate such an impact and act as a role model for other organizations — that’s why we take a strategic approach to energy management and environmental sustainability.”<br><p></p><div><div>For more information about the awards, please visit <a href="https://www.fortisbc.com/Rebates/SavingEnergy/SavingEnergyForBusiness/Awards/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">FortisBC Efficiency in Action awards</a>.<br></div><div><br></div><br></div></div></div><img alt="" src="/PublishingImages/Efficiency-In-Action-Awards-2017.jpg?RenditionID=8" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
