The healthcare sector contributes to a significant portion of the world’s climate footprint and produces an extraordinary amount of waste. This creates rising temperatures, pollution, and food insecurity that leads to worse health outcomes for all. At Michigan Medicine, we want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. We believe that environmentally sustainable practices are essential to protect the health and longevity of our patients, the community we serve, and our planet.
Michigan Medicine aligns with The University of Michigan 2025 Campus Sustainability Goals and The U-M President's Commitment to Carbon Neutrality. We are actively expanding our existing sustainability programs and piloting new initiatives that align with our goals:
