Environmental Sustainability is central to good health. Australia is already seeing the impacts of climate change and we know too well the connection between human health and the environment. Transitioning to modern, low-carbon healthcare has benefits for the world we live in, our patients and ourselves. Hospitals have been identified both federally and by the NSW government, as a focus for cutting emissions.
At South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, we recognise the benefits of an environmentally sustainable health care system and are working to improve the District's performance.
Our new environmental sustainability plan has arrived and was recently launched at Sydney and Sydney Eye Hospital. See the launch event including presentations from experts in circularity here.
