Season 4: Episode 6 - Providence’s Carbon-Negative Health Care Pledge
Between hurricanes and heat waves, the effects of the climate crisis have never been more evident. How can health care systems make bold commitments that will make a difference in the fight against climate change?
Ali Santore, Chief Advocacy and Social Responsibility Officer at Providence, and Beth Schenk, Chief Environmental Stewardship Officer at Providence, join Health Calls to discuss their system’s pledge to be carbon-negative by 2030. They discuss the way the pledge has been integrated throughout leadership structures, the definition of “carbon negative” health care and how their climate impacts can be measured using data.
