Addressing Climate Change in the Health Care Setting: Opportunities for Action


Combating climate change is not a finite goal but an ongoing effort. Whether focusing on fleet management, local sourcing, energy and water conservation strategies, or green energy, climate change response is a continuous process. The important thing is to get started. Initiate the conversation internally, get others excited about contributing, and tap into local expertise on climate change.
