New health care GHG emission reduction action plan template helps identify & prioritize interventions

Use our template to create an action plan to reduce your health care facility's GHG emissions by identifying and prioritizing possible interventions. This resource has options to identify interventions by scope, activity, or category, and input your own financial data to estimate the costs and savings of each intervention.

Learn solutions for common GHG inventory obstacles 

Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT for a 90-minute workshop where Practice Greenhealth partners who have conducted their GHG inventories will share strategies for navigating how to get started, collecting the necessary data and quantifying GHG emissions, creating a strong management plan, and preparing to publicly share targets.
