Climate Change

Climate change is the biggest health threat of our lifetimes and will impact vulnerable populations the most significantly. The environmental health field works at this intersection of health and the environment and plays a key role in developing solutions and helping communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.


We are committed to working towards 100% clean energy use by 2030, as outlined in our declaration. We have also published a policy statement supporting funding and education for the environmental health workforce to address climate change.
