Bupa has today published a joint report with GSK Consumer Healthcare, Walgreens Boots Alliance and international non-profit organisation, Forum for the Future, on how businesses can use their net zero strategies to accelerate change across climate change and health at the same time.
The report, Driving co-benefits for climate and health. How private sector action can accelerate progress, was developed with input from businesses, NGOs, scientists, philanthropists and government advisors from across Europe and the US. It argues that a healthy planet is a key foundation for a healthy global population and that human health cannot be advanced without fresh water, clean air and a stable climate. It also aims to address a lack of guidance for businesses on how to leverage their strategies in a way that simultaneously accelerates change across these interlinked challenges.
To launch the report, Paula Franklin, Bupa’s Chief Medical Officer, is participating in a panel discussion as part of Climate Week NYC this week alongside the other contributors to the report.
