All health sector organisations have a vital role to play in adapting to our changing climate. Our actions will have an impact on people’s health and wellbeing and the way services are delivered. We expect the effects of climate change are expected to be unequally distributed, affecting disadvantaged people and groups the most. Our efforts to reduce emissions and to adapt our systems must also reduce these inequalities.
