Protecting Health in a Changing Climate Conference
April 22, 2023 | Charlottesville, VA
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 aimed to equip people who are interested in health-care sustainability with the knowledge and resources to work for change. The agenda is built around the action steps outlined in the Health Care Without Harm Global Road Map for Health Care Decarbonization.
