Climate change is widely recognized as the greatest threat in the 21st century. Canada’s health care system is a resource-intensive sector of the Canadian economy, responsible for at least 4.6% of greenhouse gas and 5.1% of carbon dioxide emissions annually. There are many opportunities to develop and implement sustainability interventions that won’t compromise the quality of health care.
