Ed Rubinstein

Director, Environmental Compliance, Energy & Sustainability, University Health Network

Ed has built a team at UHN unlike that at any other hospital – tackling not just energy management but also the GhG impacts from anesthetic gasses and more. Over 140 projects implemented since 2012 have resulted in combined savings each year to the 4 hospitals comprising UHN of $2.9 million and 49 million kWh – 21 million kWh and $1.4 million from projects completed in the last 2 years alone – and there’s another 100 projects underway. Ed also partnered with Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care (CCGH) to develop a climate change resiliency assessment tool for hospitals – program now sees Ed mentoring hospitals across Canada.
