Over the years, the med center has improved its environmental footprint and impact through waste reduction programs, reduced energy use, solar panel installation, and the TravelSmart program, just to name a few of the many efforts we have implemented.

One of the most important ways to achieve our sustainability goals is through engagement in sustainable practices. Every other year, we conduct an employee survey to measure awareness of, and participation in, sustainability efforts at the Med Center. This allows us to track our improvement and progress over time.

In December, all UNMC, Nebraska Medicine, & Clarkson College students, faculty, and colleagues were asked to provide feedback in this survey. Thousands answered and the results are now being analyzed. The survey was anonymous, but participants also had the option to sign up for prizes by putting their name in a separate form. Transparency is important, and results of the survey will be released soon.

Those who registered to win had their name placed in a spreadsheet, with each name assigned a row. Impartial witnesses used a random number generator which was then matched to the corresponding rows to determine the winners.

While not everyone could win, we appreciate the time that everyone took to provide their opinions and feedback. We look forward to reporting that data and using those suggestions to shape future sustainability initiatives.
