Working Toward the Triple Bottom Line in Surgery

Abstract

The health care industry is responsible for significant greenhouse gas emissions and waste production annually, with operating rooms producing a disproportionate share. The triple bottom line is a framework that helps organizations to consider the environmental, social, and financial “costs” of their actions. Surgical departments can incorporate this model to reduce environmental impact and achieve financial savings while still providing excellent patient care.
