Webinar Details: Sigma’s Climate and Health Webinar Series with the ANHE (Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments)
Episode Details: See details file attached to this record.
The health sector is a major contributor to climate change, with health care’s climate footprint equal to about 4.4% of global net greenhouse gas emissions. Hospitals, health care systems, health organizations, and public health departments can lead by example by implementing climate-smart health care solutions, reducing their carbon footprint, and building health sector and community resilience to the impacts of climate change. On this webinar speakers will provide an overview of how the health sector contributes to climate change and showcase initiatives being instituted by health systems and health organizations to reduce climate pollution. Speakers will additionally share how health infrastructure can be strengthened to build community resilience and improve preparedness and response to climate-related health risks.
