What we do
Health Care Without Harm Europe brings the voice of healthcare professionals to the European policy debate about key issues - chemicals, climate change and health, green building, sustainable procurement, pharmaceuticals, sustainable food and waste management.
HCWH Europe educates the healthcare sector to understand the importance of the environment and presses healthcare leaders and professionals to advocate for broader societal policies and changes.
HCWH Europe provides European policy makers with guidance documents, briefings and best practices from leaders in sustainable healthcare and we open the debate by demonstrating that change is indeed possible and alternative solutions already exist.
