RRH sustainability efforts receive international recognition  

Rochester Regional Health was named a 2022 climate champion by Health Care Without Harm, recognizing the health system’s commitment to promoting policies to protect public health from climate change and reducing its own carbon footprint. 

Rochester Regional Health was one of more than 50 health care institutions from over 15 countries in this year’s cohort of champions who are creating climate-smart health care around the world. 

The local health system received a gold award for renewable energy and silver awards for climate resilience and climate leadership. 

The awards recognize the work of these institutions across the three pillars of Health Care Without Harm’s Health Care Climate Challenge: mitigation, resilience and leadership.  

Efforts among the climate champions included reducing their climate footprint, sourcing renewable energy to power their facilities and collaborating with their communities to prepare for the impacts of climate change. 

Health Care Without Harm is an international nongovernmental organization that works to transform health care worldwide so that it reduces its environmental footprint, becomes a community anchor for sustainability and a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice.
