Building Collective Impact
All around the world, at health care facilities large and small, urban and rural, Health Care Climate Challenge participants are leading the transformation to climate-smart health care. By using their innovation, ingenuity, investments and voice, they are reducing their climate footprint, developing low-carbon models of care, adapting to stand resilient to a changing climate and advocating for policies to protect the future health of the planet.
By 2019 Challenge participants had reported:
- Collective commitments to reduce their carbon emissions by more than 34 million metric tons. Equivalent to:
- A year of carbon emissions from 9 coal fired power plants;
- Saving an estimated U.S. $3.2 billion in health costs related to air pollution.
