Sustainability in Healthcare

The Department of Health recognises the link between the health and wellbeing of Victorians and the health and wellbeing of the environment.

The department is committed to improving sustainability within health system infrastructure and performance. This commitment is documented in the department’s Environmental sustainability strategy 2018–19 to 2022–23.

To support its implementation, the department has published a strategic implementation plan and 2021-22 action plan and progress report and sustainability performance report on implementing our agreed actions.

Within this context, this section of the website focuses on improving the environmental performance of the health system.
