Greener Primary Care

By Pim de Graaf

Does Primary Care have a big environmental footprint? Do we produce much waste and CO2 emissions? Do we use much energy, more than necessary? I suspect we have no data. There are data for the health system as a whole, though, as the Health care climate footprint report describes.

Can we, as Primary Care professionals, contribute to greener health care, by identifying and exchanging good and bad practices? I propose to try and discuss with interested members of the EFPC. Does anybody want to join a first meeting and see what we experience and the ideas we have?
