Statement of Principles

and Recycling Efforts

As a responsible and concerned corporate citizen of the City of Boulder and the State of Colorado, Boulder Community Hospital realizes its obligation to protect and preserve the environment. Boulder Community Hospital will protect the environment by promoting cost-effective business practices consistent with the following principles:

  • We meet or exceed all environmental laws and regulations
  • We support and encourage recycling of the materials used within the hospital
  • We minimize waste and ensure that contaminated waste is disposed of in a safe and responsible manner
  • We seek, evaluate and implement methodologies that limit the use of non-renewable resources
  • We eliminate emissions of toxic or dangerous substances into the air, water or earth
  • We encourage the use of alternative transportation through financial and other incentives
  • We purchase products which contain recycled materials, are recyclable or reusable, and cause the least environmental harm during manufacturing, use and disposal
  • We pursue conservation of water resources and energy efficiency
  • We actively participate with government, education, business, and the public to encourage environmental values and practices
We disclose to employees and to the public any incidents due to our operation that cause environmental harm or pose health or safety hazards, and we do not take any action against employees who report to management such adverse conditions. Realization of these principles will be achieved by full participation of each of our medical facilities and the sustained commitment of all our physicians and employees.
