The Health System’s Role In The Fight Against Climate Change

The health system is one of the most important systems in society. It is also one of the most important systems to help fight climate change.

Hospitals and labs are responsible for emitting about 4.4% of greenhouse gases in the world, and generating around 5 million tons of waste each year. One way that the health system can help fight climate change is by reducing the amount of energy that is used in hospitals. This can be done by installing solar panels, using LED lights, and replacing air conditioning units with heat pumps.
