CLIMATE ACTIONWORKS GUIDES YOUR PATH TO NET ZERO EMISSIONS
We present our research at national meetings, conduct individual onsite presentations and workshops for health systems, and host webinars — all grounded into our constant and neverending efforts to uncover the best practices in emissions reductions.
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.
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.
