UC Health joins national pledge to decarbonize the health sector and boost climate-change resilience
University of California Health has pledged to take further climate action as part of a nationwide health sector initiative led by the Biden administration. UC Health has been committed to carbon neutrality by 2025; with this pledge, the health system will take additional action on assessing supply chain emissions and developing climate resilience plans for UC’s health facilities and communities.
We are pleased to be part of this group of health care organizations leading the way to reduce the sector’s environmental impact and increase climate resilience. This commitment is an important part of the ongoing work across our system to ensure equity, justice and sustainability in our delivery of health care,” said Carrie L. Byington, M.D., executive vice president of University of California Health. “We thank the White House and the Department of Health & Human Services for their leadership on this important issue.”carbon neutrality, Dr. Carrie L.
