Kindred Healthcare's Support Center received an Environmental Sustainability Award from the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center. The award recognizes KPPC client companies that have demonstrated a commitment to the principles
of sustainability. Kindred Healthcare employees have formed a Sustainability Think Tank and have started implementing a variety of environmental and efficiency projects.
At the company's downtown Louisville headquarters facility, Kindred has introduced a full line of eco-products at its on-site cafe, replacing "to go" containers, cups and packaging with 100 percent biodegradable, compostable,
plant-based plastic products. The company has also instituted an extensive facility-wide recycling program and recently completed its 1st annual Commuter Challenge, urging employees to bike, walk, take the bus or carpool to work.
Earlier this year, the company worked with KPPC to complete an on-site assessment of the facility's energy usage, and has signed onto the Kentucky Save Energy Now initiative, pledging to reduce its energy consumption by 2.5 percent over the next 10 years. Kindred also supported Louisville’s participation in the ENERGY STAR® Kilowatt Crackdown.
Accepting the award, Kindred Healthcare's Senior Director of Corporate Facility Management, Stephanie Warren, thanked the many employees and partners who have worked with her and her team to get their environmental sustainability
program off the ground. She also thanked KPPC's engineering team for their contribution, saying that, "they've been so enthusiastic in working with us that it's really energized our efforts."
