National H2E Award

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description This spring CT DEP’s Office of Pollution Prevention received the Champions for Change Award for its leadership in assisting Connecticut hospitals with improving their environmental performance. Laura Brannen, Executive Director of Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E), praised DEP, saying “The Connecticut DEP is at the forefront of a fundamental shift in the health care industry; by encouraging the use of healthier and more responsible products and practices, DEP is helping all of Connecticut’s health care facilities to operate in ways that better protect the health of patients, workers, communities, and the environment. This is a revolution that benefits everyone.”

CT DEP provides education and outreach to hospitals through the Connecticut Hospital Environmental Roundtable (CHER), formed by DEP in 2004 as a way to help hospitals address the growing number of environmental concerns and regulatory requirements facing the health care industry.
