Working together to create a sustainable future
For the generations to come, we need a healthy and sustainable world that offers affordable quality healthcare for all within the ecological carrying capacity of our one planet. While absolutely achievable, it will require a massive collective effort, not only on the part of the healthcare industry, but by public and private sector organizations in every corner of the world’s economy. We invite C-suites everywhere to join initiatives such as the Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy and the Capital Equipment Coalition, which recently expanded to North America, the World Economic Forum’s Global Plastic Action Partnership, and RE100 — making the industry equivalent of UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) — to ensure that a healthy sustainable world is brought to reality.
