In the U.S., where health care is responsible for at least eight percent of the country's emissions, Health Care Without Harm is working with the health care sector to reduce the environmental footprint of hospitals. Some of the organization's past accomplishments, working in conjunction with EPA and other health organizations, include virtual elimination of the use of mercury-based medical supplies, such as thermometers; and a major reduction of hospital incineration (which was found to be a major source of dioxin). More than 1000 major U.S. hospitals have joined Practice Greenhealth, an HCWH spin-off membership organization for hospitals engaged in environmental sustainability.

About Health Care Without Harm: HCWH is an international coalition of more than 430 organizations in 52 countries, working to transform the health care industry worldwide, without compromising patient safety or care, so that it is ecologically sustainable and no longer a source of harm to public health and the environment.

About the HCWH Climate Campaign: HCWH's climate campaign mobilizes the health care sector to advocate for strong climate mitigation and adaptation policies at the local, national and global levels. HCWH also works to assist the health care sector to reduce its climate footprint. The campaign provides education, resources and tools to help the health care sector improve energy efficiency and transition away from fossil fuels toward clean, renewable energy technologies. Health Care Without Harm also promotes local sustainable food systems, and advocates for sustainable water consum
