The mission of the Green Ribbon Commission Health Care Working Group (HCWG) is to help leading healthcare facilities in greater Boston reduce their emissions, make themselves and their communities more resilient to climate disruptions, and to advocate for the significant health benefits of carbon mitigation to patients and communities.
The Health Care Working Group provides information, technical support, and opportunities for policy engagement to Boston’s world class health care facilities. Working together, we seek to help these institutions reduce their contributions to the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, help health care facilities partner with the communities they serve to address facility and community climate vulnerabilities, and leverage their trusted and influential voice to advance climate policy and environmental justice.
The working group also seeks to measure progress in the industry through reporting and advocates for climate action on behalf of the industry at the city and state level.
