Environmental sustainability strategy - Strategic implementation plan 2019–20 to 2022–23 - Action plan 2019–20

The Environmental sustainability strategy 2018–19 to 2022–23 sets out our commitment to further improve the environmental performance of the health system and to adapt the health system so it is resilient in the face of climate change. The delivery of the strategy is being coordinated by the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority (VHHSBA).

The strategy contains three strategic directions, with each direction having a series of key objectives and high-level actions from 2018–19 to 2022–23. The strategic directions are:

  • provide leadership and engage with the sector
  • improve the environmental performance of the health system
  • adapt to a changing climate.

The 2018-19 performance report details progress in implementing the strategy in its first year, as well as the overall environmental performance of the health system.

The strategic implementation plan outlines VHHSBA's high-level focus over the life of the strategy. The plan will be reviewed annually and may change year-on-year as priorities change. The Strategic Advisory Group provided input to this plan at its meeting on 16 October 2019.

The action plan outlines the specific tasks to be implemented in 2019–20 to deliver against the strategic directions and objectives in the strategy.
