Providence’s Environmental Stewardship Report

We are pleased to share our first Environmental Stewardship Report highlighting our environmentally sustainable practices and the work we have accelerated since we made our pledge to become carbon negative in April 2020.
Our Bold Commitment

The Providence family of organizations has a vision of health for a better world. As such, we are called to care wisely for our communities, resources, and earth. Our organizations strive to become carbon negative by 2030.

This bold commitment goes beyond addressing carbon emissions. The climate crisis cannot be solved without also responding to social and racial inequities.

We are committed to health equity, including environmental equity, as climate change impacts worsen, and disparities and inequities widen due to historical and structural causes of oppression.

The current crisis calls for us to act boldly, with compassion. We are doing so by helping to care for our common home, ensuring equity today, and passing a healthy planet to the generations of tomorrow.

“This is the boldest climate goal in health care in the United States. We are proud of this work and committed to creating and supporting healthy communities wherever we serve. I hope you will all join me in supporting our efforts and doing what you can to drive down our own pollution, as together, we build Health for a Better World.”
