Targeting healthcare’s emissions hotspots
Date: 29 November 2023 | 9:30-16:30 CET | Mundo Madou, Brussels
Join us for this year’s European Healthcare Climate Summit as we look at how to tackle the highest-emitting parts of healthcare delivery. The lion’s share of emissions, more than three-quarters, comes from buildings, transport, and the supply chain. Reducing these emissions is crucial to achieving net zero emissions. Taking place in person in Brussels, the fifth edition of the conference will feature tangible and replicable examples to target the biggest hotspots in healthcare emissions.
Decarbonising healthcare operations
By addressing some of the largest sources of emissions in healthcare, hospitals and healthcare providers can take crucial steps towards decarbonising their operations. Looking beyond easy wins, the conference will focus on best practices to address emissions stemming from sustainable procurement of pharmaceuticals and single-use devices, as well as climate-smart hospital buildings and transport solutions.
Addressing these emissions is not a step that hospitals or even health systems can do on their own, it will require action from across their communities. By leveraging healthcare’s significant buying power (10% of GDP in Europe), healthcare providers can set an example for other sectors.
Help us shape the future of healthcare
Working with healthcare facilities across Europe, we have identified key knowledge gaps addressing these larger components of emissions. At this year's Summit, we will present some innovative solutions from across Europe and gain valuable feedback from attendees to support us in developing recommendations to address these emissions hotspots.
Spaces for this conference are limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
Who should attend?
The European Healthcare Climate Summit is primarily aimed at sustainability professionals, senior decision-makers working within healthcare facilities, and healthcare professionals. Since we are looking beyond the sector and addressing supply chain emissions as well, we also welcome healthcare procurers, suppliers, and industry representatives. Connect with like-minded colleagues to exchange best practices and explore opportunities to collaborate on future decarbonisation projects.
