GREEN HOSPITALS: SHARING INNOVATIVE PRACTICES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

7 October 2021
Online, worldwide

 

Climate change is at risk of becoming the biggest public health threat of our generation. Medical professionals have identified climate change from carbon emissions as the ‘biggest global health threat of the 21st century’[1]. Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause more than 250,000 additional deaths per year.

As the impacts of climate change upon the environment and society become ever clearer, the healthcare sector needs to urgently recognize the opportunity it has to lead the way in tackling this global crisis. Across the world, healthcare professionals are at the forefront of the fight against climate change and are driving innovations to invent the ‘green hospital’ of the future.

At this special virtual event with Dialog Health, healthcare executives from across the world came together to share their stories and strategies of leading innovative practices for a sustainable future.
