Greening the OR: Welcome

A collection of literature on managing the environmental impact of the operating room (OR).


MSK’s Greening the OR initiative focuses on reducing the environmental impact of the MSK operating rooms. According to Practice Greenhealth, the OR is one of the largest users of supplies within a hospital and one of the largest producers of waste. This LibGuide collects articles from journals on relevant topics, including Greening the OR, reprocessing, anesthesia, and reusable devices.

Note: some articles are available as abstracts only. MSK staff can request full texts of articles through the MSK ILLiad document delivery service (this service is available for MSK staff only). Other users, please contact your local library to access full text of articles.
