NPSF Is Earth Friendly
Share |

   NPSF is committed to conducting its business in an environmentally responsible manner. Here are a few of the ways in which we have pursued earth-friendly practices.

We recycle paper, bottles, and cans in our offices. Our 2015 achievements:

  • saved an estimated 3.97 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere
  • saved 71 trees: 8,334 pounds of paper recycled
  • 223 pounds of bottles and cans recycled

NPSF and CPPS member programs have phased out production and mailing of paper member welcome kits in favor of electronic kits. All program materials and background information are delivered to NPSF and CPPS program participants in electronic format.

The American Society of Professionals in Patient Safety (ASPPS) has transitioned to providing member certificates on line, eliminating the use of packaging and paper for mailing to new or renewing members.

For our Annual Patient Safety Congress, we have eliminated the use of a large volume of paper by providing information electronically rather than through paper mailings, and by moving most of the onsite program, plus numerous other handouts, to a mobile app,

For NPSF board meetings, we used to provide a hefty paper board book to each person attending. We have eliminated the paper books and now make all of the needed information and documents accessible on line.
