In 2016 Kaiser Permanente set a goal to become a carbon neutral health system by 2020. This year, Kaiser achieved its goal of carbon neutrality. To celebrate this major accomplishment Kaiser Permanente and Health Care Without Harm issued “The Path to Carbon Neutral: A Guide to Building a Climate-Smart Health Care System.” The guide explains the unique role hospitals and health systems can play in reducing carbon emissions to address climate change. The guide also shares lessons from Kaiser Permanente’s experience for other hospitals and health systems that are working to reduce carbon emissions.
