UC Health receives global recognition for climate change and resiliency leadership

Five University of California academic health centers have been honored for their ongoing efforts to address climate change and strengthen resiliency. The centers earned awards as part of the Health Care Climate Challenge, an annual global initiative organized by Health Care Without Harm, a non-profit advocacy group.

Each participating organization is evaluated based on work in three areas: mitigation, leadership and resilience, with a commitment to reporting progress each year and demonstrating transparency and accountability. UC academic health centers received a number of honors:

  • UC Davis Health: Climate Resilience Award – Gold, and Climate Leadership Award – Silver
  • UCI Health: Climate Leadership Award – Silver
  • UCLA Health: Climate Champion (United States and Canada), Climate Leadership Award – Gold, and Climate Resilience Award – Gold
  • UC San Diego Health: Climate Leadership Award – Silver
  • UCSF Health: Climate Leadership Award – Gold
