Decarbonizing Healthcare

2:15 PM - 3:15 PM (PDT), Monday, June 13, 2022 ・ Upper Level, Session Room 7B

While there are many other sectors that are the focus of carbon-intensity reduction, the healthcare sector has unique challenges for addressing climate risk and managing the transition to a carbon neutral business model.  The entire industry, from R&D and suppliers to hospitals and other providers, has a single-use item problem and deploys gases that tend to linger in the atmosphere longer than traditional greenhouse gases.  This panel will discuss the issues facing the healthcare industry and how companies are responding to the global call to reduce emissions and waste.
