New Road Map for Zero Emissions Health Care.
Health Care Without Harm, in collaboration with Arup, developed The Global Road Map for Health Care Decarbonization: a navigational tool for achieving zero emissions with climate resilience and health equity, launched on 14th April at the 2021 Skoll World Forum.
The Road Map is the first of its kind to chart a global health care course to zero emissions by 2050. Health care’s climate footprint is already substantial, equaling 4.4% of net global emissions. Without climate action inside and outside the sector, health care’s climate emissions would more than triple to over 6 gigatons a year by 2050, equal to annual emissions from 770 coal-fired power plants.
