Pursuing environmental sustainability doesn’t just reduce carbon emissions and build resilience into healthcare delivery, it can also be very good for your hospital’s operations. With wide-ranging benefits including cost-savings, promoting workforce wellbeing, and improving the health of your community, net-zero hospitals can reduce the long-term burden on the health system.
For hospitals managers around the world, mastering sustainability is an essential modern leadership competency. Take the lead with confidence alongside the Geneva Sustainability Centre’s world-class faculty and learn strategic tools you can implement immediately. This masterclass brings together the scientific imperative with practical expertise on how to successfully transition to low-carbon, resilient, and sustainable healthcare.
The interactive, in-person sessions include presentations/lectures, roundtable discussions, workshop activities, and opportunities for networking. Resources include pre-course reading, and access to the GSC Carbon Emissions Learning Lab (CELL), an innovative simulation tool to ensure you master sustainable investments in hospital settings.
In a workshop tailor-made for healthcare leaders, participants:
- Gain fundamental knowledge of the relationship between human and planetary health – and your role as a hospital manager in driving the net-zero transformation.
- Develop effective strategies and discover tools to monitor progress as you build resilience into healthcare delivery, based on successful examples from hospitals across the world.
- Learn from sustainable healthcare experts enhanced by global perspectives from exchanging and networking with peers in a select group of international hospital managers
