Glen Garrick, MBA, LEED AP

Sustainability Manager, Fraser Health

Over the past 10 years Glen’s strategic focus for the 61 lower mainland core acute care hospitals, research, and residential facilities under his purview has shifted from a single individual “doing less harm” to running a team of 10 professionals tasked with “building a resilient and sustainable future”. First, and still very focused on reducing water and energy use, and GhG emissions, all with significant impact, but more recently, taking a longer term, more strategic view, encompassing things such as building the infrastructure that encourages staff to bike to work or acquire an electric vehicle, building a more sustainable supply chain, eliminating waste, increasing recycling and re-use, working with executive leadership, and changing employee mindsets.
