Building the Green Supply Chain


Kai Abelkis believes that going green doesn’t mean going into the red. As the environmental coordinator at Boulder Community Hospital (BCH) in Boulder, Colo., Abelkis heads a program to find ways to “reduce, reuse and recycle” goods and materials procured by the hospital’s 2,675 employees. These efforts have helped save more than 50,000 trees while eliminating 61,700 pounds of pollutants and 35,000 yards of landfill materials since 1996, according to the hospital’s own records.
