Caring for our common home by reducing our impacts on the environment.
The escalating global climate crisis is harming human health and wellbeing, especially for those who are poor and vulnerable. Our family of organizations believe that health is a human right and we are committed to improving environmental determinants of health, such as air quality and water pollution, that may contribute many chronic and acute health conditions. To uphold the dignity of each person we must examine the often-unseen issues of social and environmental injustice and become a champion for them and all marginalized populations. As a deeply engaged community partner, we see many opportunities to create health for a better world. Looking first to the impact of our own footprint, our goal is to become carbon negative by 2030. This work is well underway across our family of organizations.
