The Health Care Climate Challenge mobilizes health care institutions around the globe to protect public health from climate change.
Hospitals, health systems, and health care facilities are invited to sign the Health Care Climate Challenge pledge and join the climate-smart health care movement.
It’s easy to get started:
- Sign the pledge to join the challenge.
- Access our resources to move toward climate-smart health care.
- Report your data and progress.
After enrolling, the Health Care Climate Challenge provides participants with easy-to-use resources to help support climate-smart solutions and a login to submit data. For Practice Greenhealth members, data can be automatically uploaded from the Climate page of the Environmental Excellence Awards. Health systems that do not submit 60% or more of their facilities through awards will be asked to submit system-level data in the Hippocrates data system.

Working on reducing a hospital or health system’s climate impact doesn’t happen in a silo. This is why our most successful, leading health systems are part of the Practice Greenhealth network, where they learn about and share various strategies for mitigation, resilience, and leadership.
