Our commitments

We’ve produced a set of guiding principles for health organisations to demonstrate leadership and take steps to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Our commitments provide a list of actions that organisations can take. It recognises the wide diversity there is among our membership, and that different organisations are on different stages of the journey, each with their own individual priorities. 

The commitments provide a set of guiding principles that organisations can aspire to achieve, adapting as required to suit individual circumstances.
