MetroRehab Hospital is committed to ensuring that our day to day operations promote and implement responsible environmental practises and continual improvement.
In 2011, MetroRehab Hospital invited Marrickville Council to conduct a water efficiency audit. This audit identified that retrofitting of taps and shower heads as well as improved monitoring and quick repair of leaks would reduce water usage at MetroRehab. Retrofitting was conducted where possible and a program was set up to indentify and quickly repair leaks.
This initiative resulted in a 7% per annum reduction in water use which equates to 750 litres of water saved on a daily basis.
In November 2012, MetroRehab attended the “Target Sustainability @ Marrickville” Environmental Awards ceremony where we were presented the Runner Up in the Water Saver Award category.
