Special to 1812Blockhouse (emphasis added)

OhioHealth was celebrated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) on November 10 for pledging ongoing action to decarbonize the health care sector and make health care facilities more resilient to the effects of climate change.

“With this pledge we are aiming to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and achieving zero emissions by 2050,” said Steve Markovich, MD, President and CEO, OhioHealth. “This is a critical step in reducing our environmental footprint and mitigating the public health threat posed by the effects of climate change.”

The HHS Office of Climate Change and Health Equity (OCCHE), part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, developed the White House/HHS Health Sector Climate Pledge to help focus industry response to climate challenges. In addition to reducing their carbon footprint, signatories also commit to producing detailed plans to prepare their facilities for both chronic and acute catastrophic climate impacts.
