Office of Sustainability

The Johns Hopkins Hospital General Services Office of Sustainability promotes environmental sustainability throughout the hospital. We are committed to avoiding harm to human health, promoting a safe patient atmosphere, and improving environmental quality by enhancing policies, programs, and practices for all of the hospital’s business activities.

Our goal is to create a culture of sustainability in decision- making, planning and actions. We hope you will adopt green practices in the workplace, at home and in the community.

Keeping it Green @ Hopkins


The Green Team is a grassroots and cross-functional group of employees who meet regularly to build a "green" community within The Johns Hopkins Hospital where employees can learn, share, and create sustainable programs.

Fresh Produce, Healthy Living

Farmers Market

Local and sustainable produce and prepared foods are sold at a weekly farmers market organized for hospital staff and community members. The market, typically held May through October on the East Baltimore campus between the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center and the Cancer Research Building, features free electronics recycling, health fairs and events focused on spreading awareness of healthy recipes through cooking demonstrations.

Community Supported Agriculture

As a host site for the community Supported agriculture (CSA) program, The Johns Hopkins Hospital connects local farmers with employees, staff members and students, who can order shares of fresh produce and pick up their items at the JHH farmers market.
