The Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Agenda is a comprehensive environmental health framework launched in October 2011. Since then, hospitals, health systems and health organizations representing more than 3,500 hospitals from six continents have come together to form a global network and and have begun to use this framework to reduce their ecological footprint and promote environmental health.
The Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Agenda sets out to support existing efforts around the world to promote greater sustainability and environmental health in the health sector, and thereby to strengthen health systems globally.
This document provides a comprehensive framework for hospitals and health systems everywhere in the world to achieve greater sustainability and to contribute to improved public environmental health.
The Agenda consists of ten interconnected goals. Each contains a series of Action Items, as well as Tools and Resources that hospitals and health systems can use to support implementation.
