ThedaCare has earned the designation of "Green Professional," in the Green Masters Program established by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council.

As a Green Professional, ThedaCare has demonstrated continued commitment to sustainability in the business sector.

"ThedaCare strives to be a healthcare sustainability leader through the reduction or elimination of energy and water usage and the amount of material sent to landfills," said Paul Linzmeyer, corporate sustainability manager, ThedaCare.

An example of ThedaCare's sustainability progress includes the company's initiative to increase the percentage of locally sourced food in their facilities by working with growers as well as companies involved in the distribution and supply chain.

Applicants to the Green Masters Program are judged on a range of sustainability issues, from energy to water use to educational outreach and governance. More than 125 Wisconsin businesses are participating in the program where the top 20 percent achieve the highest "Green Master" designation. For more information, go to www.greenmastersprogram.com.
