“Going Plant-centered for Patients & Planet” 

Practice Greenhealth’s Greenhealth Academy* presents…“Going Plant-centered for Patients & Planet”

Food production is a significant contributor to climate change, accounting for nearly a quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Animal-based foods account for two-thirds of agricultural GHG emissions and more than three-quarters of agricultural land use, while plant-based foods have much lower environmental impacts. As people strive to make more healthy and sustainable food choices, they are becoming increasingly interested in plant-centered foods. Health care facilities can meet this demand and elevate their climate change strategies by reducing animal-based foods and increasing plant-centered options. This webinar will introduce the Cool Food Pledge, a new platform to help hospitals, universities, businesses, and cities offer diners more of what they want while slashing food-related greenhouse gas emissions. Learn how to participate in the Cool Food Pledge and how committing can benefit a facility’s triple bottom line.

Gain insight on how:

  1. Menu and food procurement choices affect the climate
  2. Hospitals can achieve climate and health goals using the Cool Food Pledge
  3. Plant-centered menus respond to consumer trends
  4. Hospitals can participate in the Cool Food Pledge

There is no cost associated with this webinar.
