GRC Profile in Climate Action, A Case Study on Clean, Green Health

Climate change is this century’s largest public health threat. The Boston Green Ribbon Commission’s (GRC’s) Health Care Working Group convenes leaders from all of metro Boston’s major hospitals, including Boston Medical Center, to collaboratively advance energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate resilience to deliver their significant health benefits to our communities. As a result, GRC HCWG hospitals lead their sector nationwide in public policy engagement and climate preparedness and reached more than 27 percent greenhouse gas reductions in 2017, exceeding the City’s and Commonwealth’s goal of 25 percent by 2020.

This case study looks at the amazing impact the healthcare sector has on resiliency measures in Boston.
