Destination CleanMed 2022: Hospitals and suppliers aligning for climate action

January 25, 2022 12:00 PM ET

Only when health care systems and supply chain partners work together will we see real progress to reduce health care’s global climate footprint. There has never been more momentum to address health care’s climate impact. 

Hear from Health Care Without Harm and Practice Greenhealth founder Gary Cohen on initiatives underway to align the supply chain with leading U.S. hospitals’ and health systems’ ambitious climate commitments. Cohen will also focus on where this work is headed and why health care systems need innovative local and national suppliers to partner with them.



Destination CleanMed 2022: Climate-smart health system strategies

March 17, 2022 12:00 PM ET

In 2020 and 2021, health systems across the country were challenged to care for their communities in the face of record-breaking heat waves, floods, hurricanes, and wildfires brought on by the climate crisis, alongside the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, health care’s energy- and resource-intensive operations contribute to climate change. Learn how leading health systems are implementing climate-smart strategies to reduce their carbon footprint and prepare their facilities and communities for climate impacts. Members of the U.S. Health Care Climate Council will share their experience setting and implementing net-zero goals, electrifying their facilities, and investing in community climate resilience.
