Breaking down IRA funds & the HHS pledge
In the past year, two major federal actions have brought new opportunities for health care climate action. Through HHS’ Health Sector Climate Pledge, more than 100 organizations representing 837 hospitals have committed to decarbonizing their operations and increasing resilience. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was also signed into law, bringing $369 billion in investments to drive the growth of clean energy and cut the nation’s climate impact.

Join this session to hear from two Health Care Without Harm climate experts and Hackensack Meridian Health’s VP of sustainability, who will share what the HHS pledge means for your hospitals and how IRA funding can help health care organizations advance their climate goals.

All Destination CleanMed webinars will be recorded and posted to the CleanMed website soon after the event.

Feb 2, 2023 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
