About Us

Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe is a non-profit European membership organisation of hospitals, healthcare systems, healthcare professionals, local authorities, research/academic institutions and environmental and health organisations. It currently has 84 members in 26 countries of the WHO European Region, including 17 Member States of the European Union.


Vision

Healthcare mobilises its ethical, economic and political influence to create an ecologically sustainable, equitable and healthy world.


Mission

Transform healthcare worldwide so that it reduces its environmental footprint, becomes a community anchor for sustainability and a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice. 


Overarching Goals

1. Protect Public Health from Climate Change: Reduce healthcare’s carbon footprint, foster climate resilient health systems, mobilise the health sector to address climate change as a public health issue, and advocate for solutions that accelerate a transition to clean, renewable energy.


2. Transform the Supply Chain: Establish and globalise procurement criteria and leverage healthcare’s purchasing power to drive policies and markets for ethically produced, healthy, sustainable products and services.


3. Build Leadership for Environmental Health: Inspire, mobilise and support healthcare’s leadership to promote environmental sustainability, human rights, and the right to health in order to achieve large-scale transformational change.
