Date: 
Tue, 10/04/2011

As large, resource and energy-intensive organizations that employ many people, health systems produce large amounts of greenhouse gases. Therefore, they contribute to climate change, raising the paradox that, on balance, they may, inadvertently, do people’s health more harm than good in the long term.
