UN Climate Summit – Cross System Statement

The health sector in England is the first globally to issue a collective statement of intent to deliver climate friendly services.

Leaders from major organisations in health and care have joined together to issue a landmark commitment to tackle climate change. The Cross System Group joint statement, which was issued at the WHO Climate Summit in New York on 23 September, is the first example of one country’s health sector committing to combat climate change together.
