Envisioning a Thriving Planet Through Healthcare Sustainability

Imagine a world where communities are not only healthy but also equitable and resilient. This is the vision of Practice Greenhealth, a leading sustainability network that provides environmental solutions to over 1,700 hospitals and health systems across the US and Canada. The significance of healthcare sustainability is more critical than ever, as the sector, if considered a country, would rank as the fifth-largest carbon emitter globally.

The World Health Organization has highlighted the undeniable impact of environmental conditions on human health, stating that enhancing these conditions could prevent nearly a quarter of global diseases. Amid rising concerns about climate change as a formidable public health threat, healthcare leaders are increasingly prioritizing the integration of sustainability and resilience into their operational and strategic frameworks.
