2023 Protecting Health in a Changing Climate: Health Care Sustainability
April 22, 2023 | University of Virginia/Zoom | 7:30 AM – 5:15 PM ET
The health sector’s global climate footprint is massive—if it were a country, it would be the fifth-largest emitter on the planet. And you might be surprised to learn that the U.S. health care sector is the worst offender, the world’s top emitter of greenhouse gases in both absolute and per capita terms.
So if we want to make a difference, where do we start?
This conference will help equip people who are interested in health care sustainability with the knowledge and resources to work for change in order to reduce our carbon footprint. The agenda is built around the action steps outlined in the Health Care Without Harm Global Road Map for Health Care Decarbonization.
