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.
