Health Care Climate Learning Initiative

Reducing emissions & increasing resilience: Learning from each others’ experiences

Together with our partners around the world, Health Care Without Harm convened representatives from 98 health care organizations spanning 20 countries to share their learnings from implementing decarbonization and climate resilience initiatives.

These workshops brought together health care leaders to discuss proven practices, share challenges, and collaborate on climate goals and strategies.

We’re delighted to share initial results of the Health Care Climate Learning Initiative with you today.

11 videos from hospitals around the world

Participating health care organizations submitted 5-to-10-minute case study videos demonstrating progress in one or more of the following areas:

  • Gaining hospital leaders’ commitment to climate action and related resource allocation
  • Baselining emissions, estimating risks, and developing strategies and action plans
  • Creating a carbon- or climate-management plan to improve facility- and community-based climate adaptation and resilience
  • High-impact interventions to reduce emissions and build resilience and adaptive capacity
