CHANGE IS COMING TO HEALTH SYSTEMS

HEALTH SYSTEMS CONTRIBUTE ~10% OF THE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IN THE UNITED STATES

Climate change is killing more than 250,000 people each year, and health systems are responsible for nearly 10% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. The government has noticed, putting a more significant emphasis on the fight against climate change.

If you don’t have a net zero plan, you risk:

  • Growing pressure to take action
  • Getting buried in new regulations
  • Falling behind in the industry
  • Losing workers to the competition

BE THE CATALYST

CREATE ACTION IN YOUR HEALTH SYSTEM

Climate change is too big to face alone. We need to work together to reverse its effects.

That’s why we work with healthcare systems to find and share proven ways to reduce emissions that have a measurable ROI. And we provide the education, diagnostics, and support you need to lead your health system to net zero emissions.

EDUCATION

We present our research at national meetings, conduct individual onsite presentations and workshops for health systems, and host webinars — all grounded in our constant and neverending efforts to uncover the best practices in emissions reductions.

DIAGNOSTICS

We complete an in-depth examination of your organization — not only your current emissions but your preparedness for tackling them. We analyze your facilities and interview dozens of your team members to understand the team’s knowledge, appetite, and capabilities for reducing emissions. Our extensive process concludes with a full written report, gap analysis, and recommendations for moving forward.

IMPLEMENTATION SUPPORT

Our team has worked with health systems on many strategic and operational issues for over 25 years. We share our extensive knowledge in a tailored approach for your needs, from leading your teams through workshops and providing toolkits to “at the elbow” support in project management and implementation consulting.
