Climate change is impacting all of us and the call for action is louder than ever. We are dealing with a problem of our century, and it demands attention and practical solutions from all in this challenging, resource-limited economy. The buildings’ sector is responsible for 30-45 % of greenhouse gas emissions and hospitals are one of the biggest emitters of all. Climate Challenge Network and Greening Health Care have been working with healthcare sector leaders over the past two decades to research and implement practical pathways to reduce emissions through data analytics, better design decisions, and optimized operations of healthcare facilities. This presentation will address the need for collective action, available resources, the current potential for emissions reduction and the biggest opportunities for hospitals to achieve deep cuts in GHG emissions.
- Current emissions from healthcare facilities, challenges and opportunities to achieve big savings
- What can we learn from some of the new P3 hospitals’ designs and operations and how can existing hospitals leverage best practices in their transition to low carbon?
- Where can a facility team find answers and resources to help understand their emissions, identify opportunities and plan for low carbon solutions?
- The financial case for low carbon transition and why it is always a better alternative to like-for-like plant replacements
- What role will industry play and how ready are we for this transition?
