Climate change poses an undeniable threat to our planet and the well-being of future generations. As we witness its far-reaching effects, it's becoming increasingly clear that urgent action is required across all sectors, including health care. The importance of health care climate action cannot be overstated; it's not only about reducing carbon emissions but also safeguarding public health, ensuring resilience against climate-related disasters, and demonstrating leadership in sustainability practices.

In the face of these challenges, the Health Care Climate Challenge empowers health care institutions to pledge their commitment to climate action and implement tangible strategies to reduce their carbon footprint. Sign the Climate Challenge pledge, join the movement, and become part of the transformation!
