    About this event

    This spring, Yale School of Public Health is arranging a virtual event divided in three parts. This three-part symposium provides an overview of the current state of health care sustainability accounting, and seeks global lessons that can be adopted by the US health care delivery sector to guide mitigation and resilience strategies. 

    Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare will partner up with Yale School of Public Health in the third and last part, on June 10, where we focus on "Lessons from the Nordic sustainable health care experience". Read more about the three different sessions and register below.

    Part 1: Sustainability frameworks for the US health care delivery sector

    May 27, 2021, 11:00 am-3:30 pm EDT
    Presented with the Yale Center for Business and the Environment.

    This session will review the current state of sustainability accounting frameworks to help health care leaders prepare for near- and long-term sustainability efforts that address their most important environmental impacts, risks and opportunities.

    Part 2: Lessons from the Greener NHS Initiative: challenges and opportunities on the road to net zero health care

    June 3, 2021, 11:00 am-3:30 pm EDT
    Presented with the University College London Energy Institute, the Lancet Countdown and the Northeastern University College of Engineering.

    Using the NHS as a case study, this session will provide an overview of how carbon accounting can be performed for a health care system, how mitigation strategies are developed, and what obstacles can be anticipated.

    Part 3: Lessons from the Nordic sustainable health care experience

    June 10, 2021, 11:00 am-3:30pm EDT
    Presented with the Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare.

    This session will review the Nordic path toward sustainable health care delivery, including origins and drivers, innovation, and tracking progress. Content will be drawn from Nordic hospitals, government agencies, and industry.

    The Nordic region has a long tradition of sustainability leadership in the health care sector. The content draws from the Nordic White Paper on Sustainable Health care, a regional roadmap for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Topics covered include: (i) Sustainability holistically embedded in hospital operations, which includes architecture, supply chains resource use, waste management, and governance; (ii) Innovative health care solutions developed by local companies, such as digital health solutions, sustainable medical technologies, lower-emission health care programs, and circular economy; (iii) Linkages between hospital and urban infrastructure through services such as district heating, district cooling, public transportation; and (iv) Culture, politics and legislations that have driven the regional sustainability agenda; and (v) Sustainability reporting frameworks and performance review.
