The burden of coronavirus has been exacerbated and amplified by wider, deep-seated social, economic and health concerns. The right response is therefore not to duck or defer action on these longer-term challenges even as we continue to respond to immediate pressures. It is to confront them head on. One of the most significant is the climate emergency, which is also a health emergency. It is for this reason that governments and industry are confronting climate change by making bold pledges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing sustainability more broadly. This high-level plenary will include key leaders from the U.S. and UK health infrastructure who are dedicated to taking bold climate action now.
