December 9, 2019 EcoVadis FR


A new report from one of the globe’s most prestigious medical journals says Canada’s health-care sector produces the third-highest per capita greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

The Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change’s annual report for 2019, published Wednesday, claims that the global health-care sector is responsible for approximately 4.6 per cent of total emissions, with emissions from the U.S. “substantially higher than those of any other country and have risen steadily” over the study period of 2007 to 2016, driving up some 19 per cent.
