  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Friday outlined a bold initiative for the health care sector to reduce emissions by half by 2030 and reach zero emissions by 2050. HHS also asked health care stakeholders to publicly report their progress and complete an inventory of supply chain emissions. Any interested stakeholders must develop climate resiliency plans and designate an executive leader for the efforts. The initiative comes less than a year after HHS created the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity. (Press release here)
