Do No Harm: Climate Change, Healthcare, and Net-Zero Emissions (Mission Week Keynote)

Description

Health care pledges to “first, do no harm" but accounts for 8.5% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are driving climate change that harms human health. To better live their healing mission, health care providers—especially Catholic—have an opportunity to pursue science-based greenhouse gas reduction targets. This event will explore the intersection of climate change and human health and highlight the example of CommonSpirit Health, parent system of CHI Health, which has made an industry-leading commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 with an interim target to cut operational emissions in half by 2030.

  • Jesse Bell, PhD, Director, Claire M. Hubbard Professor of Water, Climate, and Health Program; University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health 
  • Shelly Schlenker, MHA – Executive Vice President, Common Spirit Health
