This new guide supports anyone working in healthcare to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint through sustainable procurement practices.

Developed using case studies from the 2023 European Healthcare Climate Summit, the guide shares three best practice examples across Europe targeting emissions from hospital buildings, pharmaceuticals, and single-use devices.

It also presents recommendations to help hospitals and health systems purchase lower carbon goods and services, cutting key sources of emissions.
