According to the World Health Organization, climate change is the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century. Healthcare represents almost 20% of the US National Economy, 10% of US carbon emissions, and 5% of global carbon emissions…and growing. Rather than “doing no harm,” healthcare is actively fueling the carbon fire.
Hence, we are on a mission to decarbonize healthcare, and we invite you to join us. We have created a “living” guidebook to help hospitals and those who design them take meaningful steps toward decarbonizing healthcare facilities.
The decarb:HEALTHCARE Guidebook highlights existing and emerging energy efficiency technologies and includes customized design improvements to help substantially reduce natural gas consumption, increase efficiency, and provide a clear path to decarbonizing hospitals.
